LoveReading View on The Story of Science

August 2015 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month  There’s a huge amount of information in this slim volume, gathered under headings such as Planet Earth, Physics, Numbers and Counting and Prehistoric Finds. It’s presented in a way that is sure to appeal to inquisitive young people, almost as a series of stories: short paragraphs explain the different topics linking them to the men and women who studied them and advanced our understanding. It makes for a fascinating narrative that gives a real sense of the development of scientific thinking. Illustrations help make the science clear and memorable and this is a book that will inspire as well as inform. ~ Andrea Reece


The Story of Science Synopsis

Diagrams, timelines and colourful illustrations help explain complex ideas.

With Usborne Quicklinks to carefully selected web pages, which allow children to find out more about history's most famous scientists, what it's like to be a scientist today, and activities and experiments to try at home.
