Look Inside Speed is determined by gravity and force. By pushing or pulling something, you can either make it stop or go. You can also make it go faster or slower.  This nonfiction Beginning-to-Read book contains high-frequency words and content vocabulary. Connecting Concepts pages include a word list along with activities to strengthen early science and literacy skills, such as understanding nonfiction text, science in the real world, science and academic language, fluency, and finding further information. 

The Read and Discover Science series is an early introduction to science at low reading levels. These nonfiction, beginning readers align with Next Gen Science Standards. Reading and content reinforcement activities in the back. The series can be used with beginning readers to practice high-frequency words, academic language, and to expand comprehension of life, earth and physical science. Aligns with Next Generation Science Standards for Grades K-3.

Speed, by Mary Lindeen is another addition to the Beginning-t0-Read, Physical Science Series. This is a non-fiction book that provides an interesting way for children to learn about various principles of the force push and pull effects on an object which results in speeding up, slowing down, or stopping. I really think the title is a bit misleading and might have been titles Force, or Push Pull. It is also an early reader book so will help to reinforce reading skills as well. At the back of the book it lists the high frequency words as well as content words that can be pre-taught or discussed if the book is being read aloud. There are facts given during the reading accompanied by photos as well as sections called "Did you Know". The section at the back for parents and teachers gives questions for further discussion, resources for further investigation as well as suggestions of activities to reinforce concepts. A good book for a primary classroom studying forces. 4/5 stars
