"There are many science books that talk about important discoveries, major theories and famous scientists from history. There are also many books that pack in dozens, if not hundreds, of scientific experiments that you can try at home to test out scientific theories, before linking these experiments back to science. However, it's rare to find a book that combines these two things; '<i>How To Be A Scientist</i>' brings scientific theories and practical experiments together in a way that keeps you turning through the pages to see what's next."

How it Works

"A fantastically practical and accessible introduction to science for 7-9 year olds"
