Synopsis: Hands-on experiments introduce natural and manmade structures such as a bird's nest and skyscraper and such structural elements as arches, domes, trusses, and beams

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-6--Spiderwebs . . . is an excellent introduction to structural engineering. Both natural feats such as spiderwebs and birds' nests and those that are man-made, such as bridges, dams, and skyscrapers, are presented along with an explanation of such construction fundamentals as arches, domes, trusses, and beams. Up . . . explains the science of flight through a variety of experiments and presents a wide range of flying machines from birds to fighter bombers. Both titles begin with the identical chapter, ``What is Science?'' Each has captioned, full-color photographs and diagrams, experiments, ``believe it or not'' trivia notes, and a useful glossary. The format is appealing: chapters and subheadings, adequate white space, and appropriately placed illustrations. The projects are suitable for science fairs and will be useful to teachers planning classroom activities. Spiderwebs . . . is a good companion to Bates's Stone, Clay, and Glass (Enslow, 1987), which features building materials, and Billout's Stone and Steel: A Look at Engineering (Prentice-Hall, 1980; o.p.), which is a poetic look at a number of large man-made structures. For more detailed information about the history and development of aircraft, see Nahum's Flying Machine (Crown, 1990) and Robins's The Story of Flight (Warwick, 1987; o.p.). --Eunice Weech, M. L.
