‘Branley gives directions with diagrams for two easy experiments that show how air is in everything, including water. Replacement of old editions with this attractive new one is recommended because of the updated, well-presented information as well as for the funny illustrations that help make learning fun.’ —BL.

Franklyn M. Branley was Astronomer Emeritus and Chairman of the American Museum-Hayden Planetarium. In 1960 he originated the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, dedicated to explaining science to young children and encouraging them to explore their world. Dr. Branley wrote over 150 science books for children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–This newly illustrated edition of a 1986 title introduces the concept of air, its presence in our world, and its importance to the environment. The text describes several interesting facts, clearly explaining ideas and incorporating experiments that are easy to reproduce at home or in the classroom. The appealing artwork supports the narrative and takes readers on a journey through the natural world. Produced in pen and warm, earthy watercolors, the pictures are filled with amusing details. Additional, easy-to-replicate activities are appended. This book serves as a wonderful starting point for educators beginning a unit on an integral part of our ecosystem and would be an asset to any science collection.–Hope Marie Cook, Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic
