There's nothing as rare as a great book on physical science for primary students. In this book, a young boy and his dog (Newton )explore the laws of motion in everyday activities like rolling a ball, riding a bicycle, and pulling a wagon. There is not only accurate physical science (basic mechanics) in this book but many authentic examples that can be used in the primary classroom.

From the tiny details (like the boy's address—the same as Newton's!) to the big ideas, this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2011 illustrates the best in informational science text. It can be used for individual reading, integrated with kinesthetic experiences, or used as a model for a student book or photo display that shows the principles of force and motion.
