The Lovereading4Kids comment
We take so much for granted these days – we flick a switch and a light comes on, push bread into a toaster and it pops up toasted, flush the loo without thinking about what’s happening in the tank, let alone anywhere else. But how do these machines and gadgets that we use every day actually work? With the help of colourful cross-section diagrams, and a host of little people shown acting out the various processes involved, this book explains. There’s lots here, from microwave ovens to jet aircraft, all dissected across double page spreads (though making a pizza and sending mail get gatefolds) and it all makes for fascinating reading! A quirky, unusual and useful information book. ~ Andrea Reece

Stuff You Should Know by John Farndon, Rob Beattie
Stuff you should know! is the fascinating story behind the daily activities we take for granted. What exactly happens when you turn on the tap, send a message on the Internet, or telephone a friend? Have you wondered where garbage goes once you've throw it out? Or where the gas that heats your home comes from? Find the answers to these questions-and many more-as you turn the pages of this book. Special fold-out pages tell what happens when you phone for a pizza or post a letter to the other side of the world.
