Synopsis: Could you get by if the lights went out? What would you do if your TV, computer, and phone all stopped working? How would you get about if trains, buses, and cars didnt run any more? You might not think about it, but without electricity, our lives would be colder, darker, and much harder work. With this book as your guide, youll discover the wonders of this essential source, exploring everything from how electricity works, to the ingenious ways that people have controlled and used it throughout the ages. With its informative timeline, helpful you can do it tips and hilarious cartoon-style illustrations, this title in the fantastic new You Wouldnt Want to Live Without series is a must-have nonfiction text, perfect for home or school. The well-organized text in this title allows readers to explore relationships between historic scientific events. Grade-appropriate contexts help readers determine the meaning of academic words and phrases while the vivid illustrations and text features help navigate the text and locate answers to questions.

From School Library Journal: Gr 5-8-Modern-day conveniences, such as cell phones and toilets, and the ingenious ways that people in the past made do without them are explored in this engaging series. Filled with bite-size facts and humorous, cartoon illustrations, the books take readers on a journey through history, showing them how science and technology have made life easier, safer, and more comfortable. Time lines chart the inventions' major developments and discoveries, providing a solid background for each subject, while brief yet interesting historical examples will appeal to even the most reluctant reader. The "ick" factor and potty humor in Toilets and Antibiotics are sure to entertain many, and interactive elements, such as the hands-on activities in "You Can Do It!," encourage experimentation and critical thinking. The books are packed with so much information that the lack of a pronunciation guide in the glossary can certainly be overlooked.α(c) Copyright 2014.
