Wired, by Anastasia Suen

Illus. by Paul Carrick

Three-dimensional illustrations accompany the story of how electricity flows from the power plant to homes through wires, step up and step down transformers through the service head and the meter box and into each house. This would be a great addition to the fourth grade electricity unit.

Grades 3-5

I'll second this!

It's fascinating how many steps it takes for electricity to get to your house. This breaks down steps in to understandable portions with simple but interesting, child-friendly illustrations.

I still don't get it completely but this helped a lot.
