This picture book was recommended for me by my son s Kdg teacher as a good purchase for our Children s Library collection A short picture book in rhyme that touches on the science topic of force and motion The science concepts and terms are explains in the back of the book This will be a great book to use for a PreK STEAM Story Class. This was like.such an obvious description of Newton s laws I like my science a bitsubtle than this Also it was written in a weird sing song rhyming scheme Newton and Me is a well illustrated book about a little boy who explores the effects of force and motion in the world around him Not only is this a cute read, but it also gives teachers ideas for how to make force and motion relevant to students One way to incorporate this book into the classroom would be to have the students experiment with force by pushing an empty box versus a full box A great discussion about why the amount of force needed to push the box changes can be started Also, an Newton and Me is a well illustrated book about a little boy who explores the effects of force and motion in the world around him Not only

excellent activating strategy to get the students interested in the topic.Grade Level P 3 Mommy s review from 9 12 11 I was a little surprised this was as interesting and fun to read as it was One I learned what it was about I really expected it to bedry than anything Maybe the rhyming plays a part there but in the end it wasn t dry at all The text is minimal so it s really not for older kids, I d say maybe between 3 6 or so The rhymes are simple and basically consist of how the boy and his dog Newton how cute push and pull one item or another and what happens each t Mommy s review from 9 12

the end it wasn t dry at all The text is minimal so it s really not for older kids, I d say maybe between 3 6 or so The rhymes are simple and basically consist of how the boy and his dog Newton how cute push and pull one item or another and what happens each time.It made Julia think about this sort of thing when she never really did before I could see her mind working and that she understood the books main purpose.When you push something away from you or pull something toward you we normally if ever don t stop to actually think about the force of motion But this puts the idea in your head and then you may just think about it for a few days.There are some extras included in the back also There is a Force and Motion part in the back which explains key words and phrases and also asks kids to do certain things like can you roll a ball in each of these motions The motions are straight, zigzag and curved The next part has 4 pictures, all from the story, that the kid has to look at and decide which force is being used and how Sometimes there isn t just one which can be tricky for a young child The next part is Who is Newton and following that is Newton s Laws of Motion A website is also

content with actual experiences they have had What a clever book It tells the adventures of a young boy and his dog, Newton as they play throughout the day It does a great job of incorporating key aspects of forces and motion and would be a great book to introduce this unit It provides exploratory information, but doesn t give away any answers, which would lead to a great classroom discussion

Me because it puts a cute twist on something that we will all end up learning throughout our education This book provides us with Newton s principles, bur in a much easier way then what it taught in
