Gravity by Jason Chin
Jason Chin has an uncanny ability to take HUGE concepts and make them understandable to young children. Here he tackles gravity and does an amazing job relating the concept to things children already know and understand. His illustrations turn the world upside down as we imagine a world without gravity. He rights the world by restoring gravity at the end of the book. The last page shows children at a lemonade stand just after gravity forced things to fall to earth. In one child’s hand is a rocket that appears throughout of the book. Young readers will love poring over the details and thinking about the amazing force that is gravity. Teachers will love this book.
