The world of science can seem difficult and overwhelming to children (and adults, too!), but this excellent book from Oxford University Press is a great start for budding scientists. The attractive, dynamic volume is divided into 22 thematic areas, including the forces of nature, gravity, cells and biology, sounds and music, heat, energy, and machines. In the chapter on the forces of nature, for example, young readers will learn about magnetism, electrical forces, fission and fusion, gravity, and space orbits. Every page is splashed with bright, interesting photographs, charts, maps, diagrams, and graphs. Vibrant visual treats include breathtaking photographs of a huge snowflake, the Eiffel Tower at night, and lightning streaking across a dark sky. The book ends with a glossary of important terms and a helpful index. A fine resource for the scientifically inclined of all ages and an absorbing, useful reference book for students in the fourth through eighth grades. (Ages 9 to 12)About the Author:
