Top Twenty Childrens Books on Magnets and Magnetism for Kids
A magnet is an object that produced a magnetic field. The magnetic field is an invisible force and as a young child I had an endless fascination with magnets. They drew me in to science in a way that few other objects could, after all - they seemed somehow magical back then as they mysteriously pulled some objects toward them and yet repelled others away. That feeling has never left me even today.
I have put together this lense on Top 20 Books on Magnets and Magnetism for kids, due to their coverage of this amazing subject and for the fun and excitement that they help raise in the young reader of any age.
May the force be with you.
