A noteworthy review of How Things Work from Library Media Connection on May 1, 2012
This series not only explains how everyday gadgets work, but also looks at items like telescopes, wind turbines, and submarines. What makes this series exceptional is the easy-to-read text and the cartoon-like illustrations. Readers will delight in the discoveries of the two main characters, a caveman and a robot, while learning about each subject. Each book also includes photographs. This series would be a welcome addition to the school library.
