How does a magnet work? Why does a magnet pick up a paper clip but not a leaf or a penny? How can the whole world be a magnet? Read and find out more about how magnets work!

Franklyn M. Branley's classic text is seamlessly updated by NCTE Orbis Pictus Award Honoree Carolyn Cinami DeCristofano in this reissue. Now rebranded with a new cover look, this book features rich vocabulary, fascinating sidebars and diagrams by artist True Kelley, and a find-out-more section with a glossary and step-by-step instructions on how to make your own magnet and find magnetic technology in the world around you!

Carlson Center for Imaging Science, Rochester Institute of Technology.

From the Back Cover:

Will a magnet pick up a paper clip or a feather? The answer is, just the paper clip. Magnets only pick up things that contain bits of iron. In this new addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, veteran author Franklyn Branley explains the properties and behavior of magnets. True Kelley's charming illustrations will entertain readers as they discover for themselves what makes a magnet. Hands-on activities include making a magnet and compass.

About the Author:

Franklyn M. Branley was the originator of the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series and the author of close to 150 popular books about scientific topics for young readers of all ages. He was Astronomer Emeritus and former Chairman of the American Museum of Natural History-Hayden Planetarium.



True Kelley has illustrated many favorite books for children in her fun-filled watercolor style, including several in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She and the author previously collaborated on What Makes a Magnet? and What the Moon is Like?

True Kelley lives in Warner, New Hampshire.
