What's Biology All About? by Hazel Maskell


What's Biology All About? by Hazel Maskell

This is the first in a fantastic new range of science books, explaining biology in an informal, fun and informative way. Written in a conversational style, this book offers children an approachable source of information on key subjects such as the life cycle, the human body, plantlife, evolution and ecosystems. It is filled with up to date information straight from the headlines on such topical issues as stem cell research and the latest dinosaur discoveries. Complicated topics are kept fun with a variety of techniques including comic strips, fact boxes and 'nerdy notes' post-its with handy mnemonics written on them. It offers fun yet simple experiments that give children working examples to learn from.
