Synopsis

50 Amazing Things Kids Need to Know About Science by Penny Johnson

Science doesn't have to just be about periodic tables and test tubes. For those kids (and adults) who are put off reading or learning about science because they think it's too hard, too boring, or just has nothing to do with them, think again...50 Amazing Things Kids Need to Know About Science will help to explain science and technology in clear and interesting ways that reinforce what children are learning at school. Packed with hundreds of amazing facts, hands on activities and 50 extraordinary (and some downright bizarre) scenarios - including How to Make Yourself Invisible, How to Survive a Lightning Strike and How to Grow Another Body - this book will entertain as much as it informs and is the perfect companion for curious minds.
