The books explore the workings of some key inventions and machinery, such as telecommunications, spacecraft, and diggers, as well as the basic structures of the Earth, animals and the human body. Each title contains: stunning artwork that supports the text and provides a clear and compelling visual aid to learning; a range of text that deliver the facts in an interesting way; and excellent cross-curricular material to support Key Stage 2-3 requirements for science, technology and history.
