This book covers a wide range of materials, some of their properties, and also includes a few projects at the end. There are plenty of real-world images to supplement the text. The language is simplistic and the book lacks some depth because of it. It would be a good book to read with younger children if you are willing to spend the extra time to fill in the missing details. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0753458675, Hardcover)

Materials answers fundamental questions about the matter and materials that make up the physical world around us. What are rocks made of? Where do plastics come from, and what are they used for? Why can I see through glass? Readers are introduced to the most common natural and manufactured materials—including metals, wood, paper, cotton, and recycled products—and learn why some are hard and others are malleable and why some stretch while others snap.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:19 -0400)

An introduction to liquids, solids, and gases--their properties and uses. Includes projects.
