PRODUCT SUMMARY


For sale in U.S. and Canada only-- The Way Things Work is a fully animated series based on the best-selling book by Caldecott Medallist David Macaulay. Each fun-filled episode enables children to understand how the principles of physics affect daily life. On the mythical "Mammoth Island," a group of islanders and their indigenous mammoths are caught up in a series of entertaining adventures, which are motivated and inspired by their need to find solutions to various everyday problems. All the discoveries of the Mammoth Islanders have been chronicled and sketched in a visiting inventor's journal. This colorful journal forms the basis of the series and will assist viewers in learning all about The Way Things Work. Teacher's guides are included for several titles, and they are available online for all titles.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"The series is humorous, informative and very educational. Explanations are clear and relevant, with neccesary diagrams to explain exactly how things work...These are exceptional physics videos that merit a place in all educational collections."- School Library Journal (August 2003)
