Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. In this small volume from the Rookie Read-About Science series, Fowler discusses the nature and applications of four simple machines: the lever, the inclined plane, the wheel and axle, and the pulley. Each spread features at least one color photograph of machines and people using them. Accompanying each picture is one or more short sentences that develop the topic for young readers. A basic introduction to a subject often included in elementary science curricula. --Carolyn Phelan
