Castle Under Siege!: Simple Machines


By Raintree Fusion

The author and science consultant of this book call it “science concepts with a high-interest twist.” And it is! At first glance this is just a non-fiction book with great castle and knight photos, and some diagrams. But reading the text makes it clear that while you will learn about a castle’s defense and how it was attacked, at the heart of the book are some physic lessons. Middle school kids will start understanding the physics, but younger kids that want to know how things work will still benefit from the clear explanations and diagrams of all the simple machines.

It’s a neat way to write a book and apparently there are more of them put out by Raintree Fusion!


Ages 6-13

Available from public libraries
