What Is the World Made Of? All About Solids, Liquids, and Gases

Written by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld, Illustrated by Paul Meisel

This book looks at the solids, liquids and gas that are all around us. The author uses everyday objects to describe each state of matter. Water is used as an example of something that can move from one state of matter to another. Each description is set up so that children (with adult supervision) can explore the three states of matter and see how matter can change from a liquid to a solid, then to a liquid, and finally to a gas by changing the temperature. Children already know about solids, liquids, and gases, this book just gives formal definitions for matter.
