Synopsis: Over Two Million Janice VanCleave Books Sold!
Janice VanCleave's Science Around the Year
Dozens of Seasonal Projects
Loads of Fun Facts

Why do leaves change colors? How do polar bears avoid slipping on the ice? How are snowflakes made? Why do your toes and fingertips wrinkle if you spend lots of time swimming? How do flies taste their food with their feet? Figure out the answers to these and many other scientific mysteries with this awesome assortment of experiments, projects, and facts for every season of the year. With an amazing experiment for each week, Janice VanCleave's Science Around the Year introduces you to dozens of wondrous topics in astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics. Discover why leaves turn colors and fall off trees in autumn, why September is a good time to look for monarch butterflies, how salt melts ice, what pinecones can tell you about the weather, and much, much more. As with all of Janice VanCleave's books, each activity is fun and includes simple step-by-step instructions, as well as clear explanations of the concepts you're seeing in action. Janice VanCleave's Science Around the Year promises hours and hours of fascinating, hands-on, safe, low-cost science fun-at home or in the classroom.

Review: Did you know? City lights trick trees into keeping their leaves longer! Birds learn their songs! Sugar is a natural antifreeze!

Prolific and popular author Janice VanCleave's hands-on, highly informative books make learning about science fun any time of the year. In Science Around the Year, readers select a season to study, or just browse through the 52 chapters (one for each week of the year). Each of the four seasons has 13 chapters dealing with biology, chemistry, astronomy, physics, or earth science. The clear, logical format starts with "Did You Know?", a fun fact that identifies the focus of the chapter, with an explanation of the science behind the fact. "Fun Time!" is a discovery experiment related to the fun fact. "More Fun with...!" is an additional activity relating to the topic, and every chapter also has a book list for supplemental fiction and nonfiction reading.

Readers will be intrigued by such amazing facts as these: Frogs have teeth. An eight-inch snowflake once fell in Siberia. Fish have rained from the sky. But this is no collection of obscure, wacky facts. Based on solid science, VanCleave's book gracefully walks the fine line between serious scientific education and truly entertaining activities. Be sure to check out VanCleave's many other lively science books, including Janice VanCleave's 203 Icy, Freezing, Frosty, Cool & Wild Experiments and Janice VanCleave's Play and Find Out about Science. (Ages 5 to 9) --Emilie Coulter
