    As mentioned in my review of Seymour Simon s Gorillas , my children s book reading is mostly in the realm of fiction, so Janet Hamilton s recent Horn Book article What Makes a Good Science Book had me whipping out pencil and paper, and taking note Franklyn M Branley s Gravity Is a Mystery, originally published in 1970, and part of the Let s Read and Find Out Science series, was one of the first titles she discussed.An informative introduction to the idea of gravity for young children, this picture book does not offer a specific definition, because as the title would suggest gravity is a mystery Instead, it takes a question any young child might ask What would happen if you dug a hole through the earth, and fell into it and expands outward from there, discussing the effects of gravity, both planetary and celestial This approach allows for a clear and concise discussion of what we do know, while also emphasizing that there is much that we don t we know what gravity does, we just don t know what it is.I liked this approach, which really makes science seem exciting, with new discoveries to be made, new knowledge to be gained Republished in 2007, with colorful new illustrations by Edward Miller, Gravity Is a Mystery is a fun book, both visually appealing and intellectually stimulating If I were a primary school science teacher trying to explain this concept, this is the book to which I would turn

    A really fun book to introduce some of the advanced concepts of gravity i.e., than Apples fall down to young students I m using this to lead a STEAM program about gravity at the library I work at, and I m very excited about it.

    Gravity IS a mystery We don t know exactly what gravity is But this brightly colored book shares how it works Easy to understand and interesting What goes up must come down Want to know why Read this book

    This book is a work of nonfiction and it is intended for primary readers Gravity Is a Mystery is about what gravity is and does This book is also about what is possible because of gravity It also explores cause and effect I rated this book two stars because it was a bit confusing I feel that if it is confusing for me that it is going to be way confusing for younger children The illustrations are modern looking and colorful The main character is a scientist and this would be appealing to children because children are fascinated with anything to do with science The scientist fits in perfectly with the topic of gravity Although children may not be able to understand this book fully they may be able to understand some concept of gravity after reading it Children would find this book appealing because there are many illustrations of the universe and children seem to be interested in what our universe looks like.

    We read this as part of our physics study While I only intended to read it with my two youngest ages 8 and 6 , the older two boys age 12 sat in with us and they enjoyed it as well The illustrations were colorful and well done The text was easy to understand I thought the author did an excellent job explaining what gravity is, while not really being able to explain it We especially loved the description of what would happen if you dug a hole all the way through the earth and how you d bounce back and forth inside the hole until you ended up in the center.Gravity is a difficult concept to explain, but I felt that all of us, including myself and the older boys came away with a better understanding A great resource when studying physics.

    The author presents gravity in a humorous and accessible way I loved the illustrations, but think the concept of the boy falling through the center of the earth the first time may be confusing to the younger readers who can only grasp that gravity keeps you on the ground Loved the presentation of different weights on different planets Again, probably better for the older readers who may be turned off by picture books.

    Gravity is a Mystery is a very well done science book for little kids It doesn t jump around in format like so many non fiction children s books and it s written in a way that makes read aloud easy I wasn t planning on doing a presentation about gravity, but once I started reading it, I realized that we had to do the dropping experiments When a book makes you want to get up and explore something, it s a good book.

    This story teaches a young audience the concept of what goes up must come down The author does an excellent job of explaining the concept of gravity in a simple way that children can relate to as well as understand I would definitely use this book in teaching children about outer space and gravity.

    A scientist and a dog teach the lesson that what goes up must come down This book takes the mystery out of gravity and explains the concept in a way that young children will understand I would use this book to teach a lesson on gravity because of the book s simple vocabulary and wonderful illustrations.

    Read aloud for young science lesson The pictures are cute for young kids, but it seems too easy for older kids I think science books are super cute and help students learn from something other than just lecture.
