Ages 5^-8. Branley practically wrote the book on bringing science down to kid level. This entry in his Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series smoothly describes how magnets work and includes a couple of nearly foolproof experiments for making a magnet and a compass. Kelly's illustrations are always a delight--as they are here--employing bright, splashy watercolors that make scientific exploration look like the fun it ought to be.

Will a magnet pick up a paper clip or a feather? The answer is, just the paper clip. Magnets only pick up things that contain bits of iron. In this new addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, veteran author Franklyn Branley explains the properties and behavior of magnets. True Kelley's charming illustrations will entertain readers as they discover for themselves what makes a magnet. Hands-on activities include making a magnet and compass.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition. See all Editorial Reviews
