Its Falling Falling

Title: It’s Falling, Falling!

Summary:

What force inside the Earth pulls everything?  It makes everything fall to the ground so nothing floats off into space.  Falling, Falling is a great way to introduce kids to the force of gravity and what it does for us.  It also gets kids thinking by asking questions like, “So why do astronauts float in space?”  Pages at the end of the book further explain gravity and its effect on things.  Make a tissue paper parachute by following clearly illustrated steps at the back of the book and experiment yourself with gravity!
