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.
Earlier this Summer, Disney released what some are calling its most successful Pixar movie, “Inside Out”. The movie touches upon many important topics like family and friends, growing up and coming of age, emotions and feelings, and is presented in such an inventive way that children can easily learn about feelings, and how they affect their behavior and ultimately their choices. Momee Friends have been so inspired by the movie, that we are devoting an entire week to the important message and lessons it delivers.
