Discover Science: Light and Sound by Dr. Mike, Dr Goldsmith


Discover Science: Light and Sound by Dr. Mike, Dr Goldsmith

Although they are all around us, light and sound arevery difficult to explain to young children. Now readers can join an expert to uncover what light and sound are, how they are generated, and how a reader's own eyes and ears work. The precise, age-appropriate text, simple hands-on projects, and key vocabulary defined in the glossary make this a great introduction to an essential scientific subject.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
