This fun and friendly science book for kids poses 100 real-life questions from kids to Robert Winston on every aspect of science.
Professor Robert Winston was inspired to write this kid’s book by the many questions posed by his grandchildren and school children he has met over the years. Perfect for those who always have another “why?”, Ask a Scientist injects fascinating fun into science for kids.
The inside of this book is packed with real questions that real children are asking. These questions have piled in from every corner of the world including the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Europe, India, China, and Japan.
DK received a phenomenal number of responses from the survey they sent out, coming back with so many great questions to choose from! The questions were carefully selected to cover the main science topics. From chemistry, physics and the human body, to all about the Earth, space, and the science of nature. They are fun, engaging, and, dare we say include some wonderfully weird questions that many adults wouldn’t dream of asking.
Ask A Scientist focuses squarely on kids - what they want to know and how best to give them the right answer. We think you’ll find a lot of the questions in this educational book will sound familiar and the format really lends itself to engaging young readers with just the right amount of detail. It’s also brimming with illustrations that do a fabulous job of informing the content.
Science can be a tricky subject for kids and this children’s book truly gets a fresh perspective on it through a child’s eyes. Full of fun facts about the world of science, it’s the perfect book for kids who dream up infinite why’s about the world around them.
What’s wonderful about how it’s written is that it highlights the flexibility of science and how not knowing something strengthens its foundations. By creating a book from questions, it shows children how science always has more to answer.
