The Lovereading4Kids comment
August 2015 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month There’s a huge amount of information in this slim volume, gathered under headings such as Planet Earth, Physics, Numbers and Counting and Prehistoric Finds. It’s presented in a way that is sure to appeal to inquisitive young people, almost as a series of stories: short paragraphs explain the different topics linking them to the men and women who studied them and advanced our understanding. It makes for a fascinating narrative that gives a real sense of the development of scientific thinking. Illustrations help make the science clear and memorable and this is a book that will inspire as well as inform. ~ Andrea Reece
