"With a light touch and kid-friendly questions, Andi Diehn leads the reader to a more nuanced understanding of their world and the science behind it, from being 'forced to clean your room, ' to the force gravity exerts when you jump from a tree ('Don't jump out of trees!' Ms. Diehn warns)."

"With lively illustrations and conversational, upbeat text, this series shines!"

"Science books are always a big hit around here. During our normal read aloud time each day, it's guaranteed that at least one of them will be science-based. Given that I am reading to two first graders, a preschooler, and an 18-month-old, our choice in science books is typically picture books.
Nomad Press has some great ones to offer. We received the Physical Science for Kids Set for review. The set includes four books: Forces, Waves, Matter, and Energy. All four softcover books are 28 pages long with a one-page glossary at the end of the book. They're all fully illustrated and just plain fun to read and look at.
Each of the books gives sound scientific concepts in easy to read and understandable terms. They're relatable, funny, and get the kids thinking. The books are written for children ages 5-8, but children older would enjoy them too.
Energy, talked about how people get energy (food and rest) and how plants get energy (sun and water). Electrical energy, light energy, and heat energy are also explored in a kid-friendly manner. This one was probably our favorite, or at least, it was the one they most requested to read.
The Physical Science for Kids Set has been a wonderful addition to our home library. The books are simple enough for everyone to understand yet contain enough scientific truth to be considered a science resource. They are written in a way that makes them great read alouds, and simple enough that my 7-year-old can confidently read them."
"Young children have so many questions about the world and how everything works. Curiousity runs wild in their brains, but more than anything they just want to learn and absorb. This series is a must get for parents, classrooms, and libraries because it addresses many of the questions that kids have."
