The Lovereading4Kids comment

This cleverly designed, attractive book will catch the imagination of all children, even those who wrongly believe that they don’t have what it takes to be a scientist. It explains that the key attribute for scientists is curiosity and then stimulates that in young readers by giving them a variety of fun, practical exercises and experiments to do. There are sticker rewards for each completed task and the experiments themselves will give children a real sense of satisfaction and achievement. A fun, inspiring way to get children thinking about how our world works and a great book to provoke understanding of the different types of scientific activity. ~ Andrea Reece
