AMMACHI’S AMAZING MACHINES

AMMACHI’S AMAZING MACHINES

ABOUT THE BOOK

Sooraj and his grandma love inventing. Join them on their latest adventure using simple machines to make coconut barfi.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • 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.

CONCLUSION

If only all science books had stories like this one and were so enthralling!

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
