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.

Praise for Materials

Children's Literature

This is an incredible introduction to the world of physics...Using brilliant, color photographs to show the reader the elements of the physical world, and with definitions at the bottom of each page, the book is easy to comprehend...This would be a great addition to school libraries and a great home resource.
