A very nice book on energy. Enough information but not so much as to overwhelm a child. I might quibbble over some of the information in the back as it says solar energy does not produce pollution and this glosses over the production of panels and their disposal. All in all though, very good.

This story can also be used for descriptive writing. When Sophie gets angry she is referred to as a volcano, and it is written in the shape of a volcano. A great story that can be used for many things.… (mer)
