Reviews

Explores key scientific topics through a combination of concise information and fun experiments. This combination is ideal to encourage children to make their own investigations and further their own learning through hands-on experience * Parents In Touch * Peter manages to bring these pages to life with simple and fluent text ... There are plenty of areas which children will want to find out more about and I can see the book acting as a springboard to further studies * School Librarian *
