Explaining how the wind works, what windmills have contributed to the past, and why they offer environmental promise today as a source of clean, renewable energy, this revised and updated edition offers a glimpse into all the current and historical uses for wind power. Featuring new information on wind energy technology and wind farms, new photographs, and 24 wind-related activities-from keeping track of household energy use and conducting science experiments to cooking traditional meals and creating arts and crafts-this handy resource offers kids interested in the science of energy and green technologies an engaging, interactive, and contemporary overview of wind power.
Gretchen Woelfle traveled across America and the Netherlands to visit windmills and to talk to people who work with them. She has been known to drive down rough country roads in North America and Europe to see giant wind turbines up close. At home in Los Angeles, Woelfle writes historical fiction and biographies for children of all ages. Katje the Windmill Cat was inspired by her windmill research. All the World's A Stage: A Novel in Five Acts travels back to Shakespeare's London. Jeannette Rankin: Political Pioneer, Write on, Mercy: The Secret Life of Mercy Otis Warren, and Mumbet's Declaration of Independence celebrate heroines of the American history.
