The Lovereading4Kids comment
Crammed full of information which will answer a great many questions about what goes on in the universe around us; this is a brilliantly written introduction which has been cleverly simplified for younger readers from the hugely successful original by Bill. Divided into short chapters which make it easier to understand and supported by an excellent index, the story of how the universe came into being, how humans evolved, how we have discovered what we know about space and much, much more are all well described and attractively illustrated.
The LoveReading Comment:
Full of extraordinary discoveries and wonder at the world we live in, this is a thrilling scientific journey through history. It raises and answers many of the questions young readers ask about how the greatest scientific discoveries were made and who made them. Starting with the Big Bang (which wasn’t really a bang after all…) it looks at what we know about the earth and how dangerous it is, how life is sustained on the planet and ends by raising some of the issues about how we protect the planet for the future. The individuals who have contributed most to these debates such as Newton, Einstein, Darwin and Marie Curie are also highlighted. Fully illustrated and with a useful index, this makes entertaining reading as well as being a useful reference book.
A Really Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
Covers the mysteries of time and space, the obsessive scientists and the methods they used, the theories, the accidental discoveries which advanced whole areas of science when the people were actually looking for something else (or in the wrong direction) and the fact that the universe exists and life came to be on this planet.
