How Toys Work is an expository nonfiction text that explains simple machines, the science of toys, how toys work, and the science of spin. The back of the book includes a section on Scientists Then and Now. Readers gain information from text and graphics. A two-page experiment written in third-person procedural language invites students to make their own pinwheel.

How Toys Work is divided into sections with some subsections. Illustrations, such as some labeled photos, charts, and diagrams support the text. Fact boxes appear throughout the text to provide students with additional learning opportunities. A wide variety of punctuation is used. Dashes are used to expand on an idea. A table of contents, glossary, and an index support the reader.

Plurals, base words with affixes, and a variety of verbs with inflectional endings are used. Subordinate clauses, prepositional phrases, and comparative adjectives, such as lower, are used in the text. The text contains many adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, simple and sophisticated connectives, and compound words. The text occasionally makes use of hyphenated words and parenthetical material embedded in sentences. Glossary words are bold faced throughout the text. Some words appear in the vocabulary of mature language users.

This title is from the Science Readers: A Closer Look series from Teacher Created Materials. Build literacy skills and science content knowledge with high-interest, appropriately levelled information texts.
