I ran this book past a rocket scientist friend who is also a roller coaster enthusiast. He assured me it is scientifically accurate. He also thought it was very fun to read. He fondly recalled his love of comic books as a young teen. So I bought a second copy to donate to a very needy school Wounded Knee District School, PO Box 350, Manderson, SD 57756. These kids deserve fun books, too.
We love The Magic School Bus books but were ready to move on to more advnaced scientific topics. Max Axiom is it. These are great! They're comic book-like but are FILLED with scientific information told in a manner that is understandable but is easily understood. In this book Max Axiom goes through Newton's 3 Laws at an amusement park, in a bowling alley, at a skate park, and in a swimming pool. My 8, 5, and 2 year olds LOVE this book and all of the other Max Axiom books as well.
I just taught a unit on Physics and this comic book was perfect for my 4th-6th graders! It explained Force and Motion with ease and in a fun engaging way. I want the whole set!!
