What is work? Kids may think work is doing chores or going to a job, but we all do work every time we move something from one place to ather. Following a group of children on their trip to the park, colourful photos, clear text and fun activities will help kids discover how they work every time they move, and how simple machines make work easier. Included are a list of websites, a further reading list, a glossary, an index and tes for adults on introducing and sharing the book with young readers.
