Description

While at play with his dog, Newton, a young boy discovers the laws of force and motion in his everyday activities. Told in rhyme, Lynne Mayer's Newton and Me follows these best friends on an adventure as they apply physics to throwing a ball, pulling a wagon, riding a bike, and much more. They will realize that Newton's Laws of Motion describe experiences they have every day, and they will recognize how forces affect the objects around them. The "For Creative Minds" educational section includes: Force and Motion Fun Facts, Matching Forces, Who Was Newton?, and Newton's Laws of Motion (2 of 3). Additional teaching activities and interactive quizzes are available on the Sylvan Dell Publishing website.

Comienza con el pie derecho! Únete a los animales con el retozo divertido de pies: corriendo, saltando, brincando, y luego descansando, justo como lo hacen los bichos y las criaturas que figuran en Kimberly Hutmacher, Patas, garras, manos, y pies. Acompáñanos en este sueño a un viaje emocionante desde la mañana hasta la noche usando las manos y los pies justo como las ardillas, monos, ratas, arañas, ranas, pingüinos, elefantes, leones, canguros, pandas, y águilas. Viaja a la selva exuberante, a la sabana africana, al interior australiano, y a la region congelada de la antártica. Finalmente, mientras el sol baja, acurrúcate bajo las cobijas y mientras dormitas recordarás a los animales jugando, inspirado por las ilustraciones imaginativas de Sherry Rogers. Después de todo, hasta los animales salvajes necesitan algún tiempo para descansar ¡después de un día de juego rápido con los pies!
