It starts by telling you that when you flip a switch the lights go on and when you flip it down the lights go off, 'it is like magic' the book says but then goes on to say however it is not magic it is electricity and then the whole explanation begins.
Various electrical energy used around the house is explained. There is also a simple experiment where you get to generate some electrical energy using a compass, a magnet and some wire. It explains how electricity comes from the generators to your house and how they light up your home.My son love these books.
Another great book in this series. Teaches kids how electricity comes into your home. There are schematics showing simple wiring thru a house. It explains about the circuit and what happens when there is a broken circuits. Switching off and on is breaking the circuit. For a few days after our first reading of this book we had lots of appliances switching off and on, you know scientific experiments! Another one of those things in life we take for granted. This book helps kids become aware of electricity and how it works. Great.
