  • Beth,
    Thank you for sharing this great little book. During our preschool summer camp we are lucky to have an engineer come in once a week and introduce children to simple machines. The engineer and his company donate his time and your book will be a fun and educational addition to our enrichment program:)

  • Thank you for this free resource! My kids are gonna love this cute pocket book. I teach at a small (11 students) non profit nature school (K-4 currently) where money is tight or non existent. I’m just starting a unit on simple machines and this is PERFECT!!

  • Thank you Beth! We are on lockdown in the UK at the moment and my 8 year old really wants to use the extra time at home to learn more about engineering. We are going to use this book alongside some of the activities you’ve posted on your blog.
