It is perfect for home or school use by 5- to 7-year-olds. It includes safety instructions for children and guidance notes for grown-ups. Why is ice slippery? What are gears? How do running shoes help you to sprint faster? How do you keep your balance? What is wind power? All of these questions and many others are answered in this exciting book, which explores the different aspects of forces and movement. Use pulling and pushing power to move toy trucks, make a lever, and use sandpaper to demonstrate friction. This book introduces younger readers to science in a structured but interesting way.
