Book Review-Galileo's Leaning Tower Experiment

Galileo's Leaning Tower Experiment by Wendy Macdonald

The farm boy Massimo was just a regular farm boy. Massimo's daily job was to drop a wheel of cheese and a loaf of bread to his uncle as he went under the bridge in his boat. One day a man named Galileo came up beside him and asked what he was doing. Massimo explained and Galileo made a connection to a man who made history...Aristotle. Galileo wondered if Aristotle's theory could be wrong. Read this book to find out what is objects fall to the ground at different speeds? Does it depend on weight or height?

I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
