A companion volume to The Ultimate Book of Knowledge, exploring science themes further and tying in neatly with the National Curriculum, Key Stage 2, where children . . . 'begin to make links between ideas and to explain things using simple models and theories. They apply their knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas to familiar phenomena, everyday things and the human body'.
