How does a train stay on the tracks? What's going on inside a pogo stick? How do cranes work? And what happens when you flush a toilet? These and many more important questions are answered in this fascinating book. From toasters and telephones to hovercrafts and robots - the inner workings of machines big and small are brought to light using a stunning mix of cross-sections, close-ups and cutaways.
Young children are full of questions about how the world works; the processes and machinations behind the scenes. Why does a light come on when you flick a switch? How can cheese from the supermarket have come out of a cow? What happens when you send a text? Where does your poo go when you flush?(!) All very good questions, and all explained-along with many more-in The Everyday Journey of Ordinary Things. With graphic, flowing illustrations and clear, colloquial chunks of text, each process is explained from its early beginnings to a satisfying conclusion. Alongside physical processes, readers are also introduced to the journeys of more abstract concepts such as information and money, as well as ecologically important processes including recycling and the water cycle. Visually arresting, informative and accessible, this is the book for every child who ever wondered, How?
