ABOUT THE BOOKSooraj and his grandma love inventing. Join them on their latest adventure using simple machines to make coconut barfi.
- One from Pratham Books’ STEM books collection, Ammachi’s Amazing Machines introduces young readers to the concept of simple machines.
- Incredibly clever and beautifully illustrated, the book has minimal text, exhorting readers, instead, to look closely at the pictures to understand how Ammachi and Sooraj use science to make yummy coconut barfi.
- Simple machines like the lever, inclined plane, wedge, pulley, etc., are explained with diagrams at the end, and readers are asked to go back to the story to identify how Ammachi’s machines worked.
- Author-illustrator Rajiv Eipe blends text and illustration together so seamlessly and their interplay results in a near-perfect picture book.
- This book is free to read, download, print and repurpose from Storyweaver.org.in in multiple languages.
