Each volume in the colorful A True Book: Physical Science series (6 titles) presents fundamentals of scientific knowledge along with related information. While the coverage is necessarily brief, each of the three books provides some appropriate stepping stones toward better understanding. Many vivid photos and a few drawings illustrate the concise chapters, and a helpful appended section features two hands-on activities related to ideas mentioned in the text. For each project, a double-page spread offers clear directions, illustrated with simple digital drawings. After introducing atoms, electrons, power plants, electrical currents, magnetism, and related topics, Electricity and Magnetism shows readers how to create a static-electric charge in the project "Shocking Static." Books explaining scientific principles to children at the elementary-school level often include some confusing passages and minor errors, typically when simplifying complex concepts, and that does occur here. As an introductory science book, Matter is the most successful, while the other two volumes still relay basic information and well-chosen activities. Grades 3-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
