I got this book to include in my preschool curriculum as a springboard from learning about good nutrition and the body to energy and why things move. The illustrations are fun and clear and captivating to the 3-6 year olds that I teach. It explains in a very simple way how and why things move and what it takes to get that movement. Its not one I would recommend for bedtime reading in that it is an educational story but it is great for the classroom. There are several more in this series that I purchased for the same reasons above. Love these books.

This book demonstrates energy and how things get energy in a variety of things and ways. In the classroom: examples of what energy is and where it gets it from. Story time book with props to demonstrate what is happening.

Energy is the source that makes everything happen, whether it is flying a kite, supplying a light bulb, or charing a battery. If it wasn't for energy, that comes from the sun, nothing would be able to function and the world would stand still. This book is useful for teaching about energy and what it powers. The book is full of information but may not keep a child's attention the whole time.
