How Machines Work- Zoo Break!

Written by bestselling author David Macaulay

Children will love this interactive book about six simple machines: the wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw and pulley. There is hands-on interaction that will excite young readers from the cover of the book where they can spin gears to make the Sloth character go up and down to the pop-ups and flaps that fill the pages throughout the book. It will be on that your children will grab to read over and over again.

Did I mention it is a STEM book written for ages 7 to 10 years old, too? David Macaulay did a great job putting the fun back into learning with this book.

Spreads highlight the use of simple machines in everyday objects, such as scissors and clocks, mixers and whisks, bikes and brakes, while the story contains clear and simple text to engage the reader.”
