    If your child loves to create, here's a book to help. This book combines creativity and physics concepts, including motion, friction, gravity, and energy. There are 50 projects to create and explore. Children learn why things work in a way that textbooks can't teach. Learn about balance by making a perching parrot. Make a lightweight hovercraft out of a plastic container or foam bowl as you learn about air friction. Play Inertia Zoom Ball with a friend. Doesn't this sound like fun? You even get to meet some of the great inventors from history. Short excerpts from the lives of Newton, Galileo, and Donald Duncan are found throughout the book. Did you ever play with a Duncan yo-yo? These and more are scattered throughout the book. Projects can be made from items found in your home. Parents will need to supervise some projects, but others can be done independently. Jill Hauser is the author of other hands-on science books such as Super Science Concoctions and Science Play! She seems to know what it takes to get kids interested in science and get them exploring. I know this book is written for children, but some of the projects would be fun to do as a family. This book would be a fun supplement for physics or just for fun! sc.~ Donna
