‘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 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.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-2 More visually appealing than the 1962 edition, this revision includes discussions of the weight of air and of the fact that spaceships have to take air with them as they fly above the air. The major deletion is that air is not found in packed tin cans. Both editions describe the properties of air and offer two simple experiments to prove that air takes up space and that air is dissolved in water. Illustrations in both bold and pastel colors are coordinated with the easy-to-read text and make this an eye-pleasing and informative book. Alice Arnett , Greenwood Elementary School, Louisville, Ky.
