" Everyday examples of simple machines. Discussion starter. I think photographs may have been more effective than illustrations. Grade 4 - Simple Machines K-5 " said.

" Good introduction to simple machines. The author introduces each machine and gives concrete examples so young readers can connect this new information to something that is already known.No back matter - I would've liked to see additional sources and websites. " said.

" Raff's illustrations done in bold colors do a good job supporting Adler's text. They show objects children will most likely be familiar with. They include appropriate labels, and are simple enough to focus on the concept described.The text is comfortable enough to be read aloud, and this would be a great book to share with students at the beginning of the simple machines unit. " said.

"In this introduction to simple machines, Adler uses everyday examples to familiarize children with wedges, inclined planes, levers, wheels and axles, and pulleys. The names of machines are in bold, but there is no glossary of terms or index. Simple, colorful inkwash illustrations clearly illustrate the mechanics of machines while providing friendly details for readers to discuss. The text would benefit from subject headings or clearer transitions between machines. This is an optional purchase for larger library collections. " said.

"Simple machines are all around us, but we often don't recognize them. This book introduces the concept of simple machines, and then gives multiple, real-world examples of common things that are based on simple machines. The purpose of simple machines, in easing work, is described, and important concepts are explained in a kid-friendly fashion. That's not a surprise. David Adler is a master at easy nonfiction. He knows how to explain things simply, yet completely. Anna Raff's digital illustrations are instrumental in showing key points. Altogether this is a nice book that teaches basic principles well." said.

" Excellent review of Simple Machines for curriculum requirements and just plain fun! Discover how our teeth and slides are simple machines along with many other examples. The descriptions are easy to understand with entertaining illustrations. " said.

" This book is a good explanation of wheels, levers, and pulleys. It is informative and full of information. In today's world of fantastic nonfiction picture books I am growing picky. This one will not capture your imagination or leave you bursting with excitement for simple machines. However, if you are looking for a good book to share about simple machines with kids this is a well written, well explained book. " said.

" Everyday examples of simple machines. Discussion starter. I think photographs may have been more effective than illustrations. Grade 4 - Simple Machines K-5 " said.
