User Review  - Goodreads

A gentle introduction to simple machines. Great and simple way to 'do' science with littles. My children love finding the mouse on each page and enjoy the illustrations. Read full review

Read this to my 5 year old to explain simple machines. The author does a great job at breaking down the parts of each simple machine (pulley, lever, wheel) and explaining how they work! Read full review
