Science Books & Films - H.C. Potter

"Chris Oxlade has produced many well received science books for children in grades 3 through 6 Using Electricity is a durable edition in his new It's Electric! series. Electricity production, transmission, uses, conservation and safety are well covered in 13, facing page chapters using short, large print sentences. Each chapter has two half-page, fullcolor, high-quality graphics, with flash captions for emphasis, on heavy, coated paper. A glossary, where wood is correctly called a fossil fuel, and index, each on one page, help find covered concepts; and a list presents resources for further study. Although one website resource file name no longer exists, this book is highly recommended for elementary school social studies libraries. —H.C.

NSTA Recommends - Ruth Ruud

"This book is written for young children ages 6–9 to explain the scientific concepts of electricity in terms that can be understood. This book discusses what electricity is, how it works, and how it is used in daily living. The author includes tips for saving electricity and safety with electricity. Each page contains science vocabulary and accompanying explanations and definitions of the words. While the vocabulary will challenge elementary readers, the large font and clear, explanatory diagrams on each page will make it accessible. Actual photographs of the science term are included on the pages. Safety is covered in the text. There is a glossary section and additional websites and books for children to find more information about electricity. Words included in the glossary are shown in bold. This is a good science book for school libraries and classrooms. It could be used at a station or for hands–on work, as well as for reading. - Ruth Ruud NSTA Recommends 9/5/2012   http://www.nsta.org/recommends/ViewProduct.aspx?ProductID=21264" - NSTA Recommends
