Thud! Wile E. Coyote Experiments with Forces and Motions

I'm always looking for a balance between age appropriate accessible science books and accurate content. Thud!: Wile E. Coyote Experiments with Forces and Motion (Wile E. Coyote, Physical Science Genius)is a great example of an author that is able to achieve that balance.

The author uses the conflict between Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner to explain Newton's Laws of Motion. The author begins by identifying and defining Newton's Laws of motions. He does that in a way accessible to elementary readers without losing the accuracy of the science concepts. The humor will encourage reluctant readers to stick with a topic that can sometimes be dry.

This is the kind of book that will encourage elementary readers to explore Newton's Laws and it is also a great way to help older reader's to also engage with the information. While amusing the information is accurate and the illustrations will help readers of all ages to understand the concepts being taught.
