Praise for other books by Jennifer Swanson:

Explore Forces and Motion! With 25 Great Projects
National Science Teachers Association (NSTA Recommends)
“Physics is fun with this colorful and informative book for students ages 7–10. Using the theme of motion, the book encourages readers to push, pull, spin, twist, and turn their way to learning basic concepts of force and motion. There are ample activities and projects throughout the book that provide the reader with ways to explore forces and motion and learn basic concepts while having loads of fun. This book would be a great addition to the classroom library or the science curriculum as a textbook.”
