Can you make an ice cube disappear? Put it on a hot sidewalk. It melts into water and then vanishes! The ice cube changes from solid to liquid to gas. This Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out picture book is a fascinating exploration of the three states of matter. Now rebranded with a new cover look, this classic picture book features rich vocabulary and uses simple, fun diagrams to explain the difference between solids, liquids and gases. This book also includes a find out more section with experiments designed to encourage further exploration and introduce record keeping. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. Leonard Fine, formerly of Columbia University, and Dr. Karin Block of the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the City College of New York. This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
