Sparks, Shocks and Secrets - Explore Electricity and Use Science to Survive by Richard Spilsbury, Louise Spilsbury

The children are playing at home when suddenly all the light go out. In the dark, they are convinced someone is trying to break in. How can they use their electronic set to save the day? Science has never been more exciting with this attention-grabbing approach which delivers true scietific learning through an action-packed story and spectacular graphic illustrations. The science is the story is backed up through simple experiments that readers can try for themselves.

Reviews

Will appeal to many children who previously had little interest in science... an excellent book. Lots of interesting questions and challenges... will prove very popular with children. School Librarian
