5.0 out of 5 stars science explained in a very child friendly way 11 Mar 2013
By Baku
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daugher is currently learning about simple machines at school. I brought this book at school and the teacher read it to the class and everyone loved it. It has funny colourful illustrations which help to explain basic scientific principles behind simple machines: the lever, pulley etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Curriculum Tie-In 1 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book easily and clearly illustrates the concept of pulley, screw and lever. Simple machines have never been so easy to explain. The cute animals and the banana party they have help the students in my 3rd grade class to understand force and work. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulleys, fulcrums and levers! 26 Jun 2008
By Idaho Britta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 4 and 5 year olds have enjoyed reading this several times already! It's a good way to introduce simple machines to this age group, and has colorful pictures too! It's fun to think of lifting lions, or moving pandas on a wagon, or getting a bunch of bananas to a baboon party!

This book is well liked by the students who read it. The story is easy to understand for elementary school aged students with great illustrations. The book is technically accurate and includes a glossary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! Even for an 8th grade science class! 9 Nov 2012
By Darlene W. Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this little book for a class assignment after teaching simple machines and the kids loved it. I gave them the challenge of how to lift a lion, given what they had learned about simple machines! Fun! They came up with the notion of having a "girl" lion at the top of an inclined plane with a "boy" lion at the bottom :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Books on sciences for kids 26 May 2013
By ilanos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 7 year old just learnt a whole unit on simple machines
at school. They did some exciting hands on experiments too.
I thought a book would elevate the concept to the abstract level
that she can put in her mind.
I can then see it in my mind...... as she added.
She can see/spot simple machines in a lot of places where I would not even think of looking.
