A wonderful children's book designed to introduce the concepts of electricity. It uses examples in the home to explain the concept, shows real world examples (some now quaint and/or antiquated like round fuses for the fuse box), and provides examples of experiments young folk can do on their own to learn about electricity. Nicely illustrated by Robin King.
