How Things Work in the HouseBook - 2012
How Things Work Around the House is a fun introduction to non-fiction that celebrates young children's inquisitiveness about the world around them. How does a spoon work? Or a bathtub? Or a toilet? Award-winning author and illustrator Lisa Campbell Ernst takes a close look and quirky look at household objects and shows how "amazingness is going on around us every nanosecond of the day" by inviting kids to marvel at things as close to home as--their own house! Learn about thermal heat, how there once was a Bureau of Missing Socks, the non-pig origins of piggy banks, and why dirt and oil are no match for soap. Discover the nifty amazingness all around us, and especially right where we live.
