Secret Science: My Body by Tom Adams


Secret Science: My Body by Tom Adams

Have you ever wondered why your dad snores? And why do some things taste good and some bad? Full of pop-ups and interactive elements, this book is all to do with the everyday science that surrounds us. It's a scrapbook-approach to the world of a school-age child, looking at why and how we do what we do. From the moment our alarms rings in the morning to when we crawl into bed at night, science makes life easier, safer and more fun. Now's your chance to explore what goes on when you don't even realise!
