Cool Nature

Publisher: Pavilion

Review

This captivating reference guide to the natural world contains just the right amount of material to inform and educate, but not overwhelm the reader. Each double-page spread focusses on a single topic, ranging from geology, evolution and DNA to animal and plant life. The text is broken up into bite-sized chunks, making it easy to understand and accompanied by colourful diagrams and humorous cartoon-like illustrations.

Packed full of exciting experiments to try at home, children can learn how to create a volcano using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, make a cloud in a bottle and turn salt water into drinking water using the power of the sun. As well as links to websites and suggestions for further research, there is also a useful contents page, a comprehensive timeline and an informative glossary. This highly recommended book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in nature.
