Great book. Simple story of hydroelectric electricity from dam to delivery at home. Sat and read book to my 9 yr old and 5 yr old sons. Not too complicated for 5 yr old not to understand the story and not too childish for 9 yr. We had fun reading story of electricity which is well decribed supported with good pictures for first time learners of the subject. The 5 yrs old got the story and I learnt one or two things ....and I'm an engineer I'm embarrased to say. Would recommend.

I bought this book after receiving another from the series as a gift for my daughter. This is an excellent series, which my daughter enjoyed from the age of 5, she still reads them now aged ten. Well worth a buy!

Great book for a ten year old. I bought this for my nephew and I read through it before sending it to him. It is amazing, lovely pictures describing the different stages and functions of electricity in an easy to understand way. There are other books similar that I would like to buy to add to this book to make up a nice colllection. Great educational book but also fun and quite mature looking book.
