moving heavy things

Summary:
Ever wonder how the folks at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum got Charles Lindbergh's “Spirit of St. Louis” to hang from the ceiling or how the Pharaohs were able to build the pyramids?
Educational Themes:
This book shows the reader man's ingenuity in solving seemingly impossible problems. By using his brain and imagination, man has developed the tools and processes that have shaped the world in which we live.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
10 and Up
Recommended Age To Read Together:
9 and Up
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. This is worthwhile for the young builder, scientist or the kid who always asks "how did they do that?" It would be worth having in the science classroom or school library, too.
Little Kid Reaction:
Review pending.
Big Kid Reaction:
This is an informative and enjoyable read. Lots of nascent practical science experiments and fun-filled learning experiences are waiting to escape from the pages of this book.
Pros:

Though the book is aimed at the individual reader, it is an ideal physical science handbook for middle school or junior high school classrooms. The graphics will stir the curiosity of the readers to go out in the backyard and test some of what they have read.

Cons:

For the most part, the author keeps his readership in mind and the graphics and words tell the story. There are a few spots (not many) where he gets into formulas that may be beyond his audience’s comprehension.
