Have you the energy?

With fuel suppliers encroaching on one another's territory, it's no surprise to find information about gas in a booklet from the electricity industry. Energy is a colourful 40-page booklet aimed at children between four and nine. It explains how we heat and light our homes and how both the principal forms of energy get to us. There are sections on how the quality of life has changed with cheap fuel over the last 100 years, with rather more about convenience than conservation. Experiments with circuits and advice on safety complete a child-friendly resource. The Energy booklet is free for schools and playgroups in most of the UK.
