The main text is supplemented by photographs, maps and diagrams to explain all the issues involved, while 'Science in action' panels offer simple experiments which allow children to see the science in a practical context, and 'How you can help' panels suggest ways in which ordinary people can make a real difference.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
