More Science Questions from Real Kids
Table of contents
Science starts with a question in this fascinating compendium for curious kids.
The team behind the acclaimed Why Don’t Cars Run on Apple Juice? is back to tackle more kid questions like “Are birds really dinosaurs?” and “Why do we have butts?” With help from Ontario Science Centre experts, Kira Vermond packs mind-boggling facts into answers that encourage further inquiry, covering topics over five sections: animals, the human body, planet Earth, tech and innovation, and outer space. From glowing scorpions and prehistoric sharks to stem cells and Mars missions, Suharu Ogawa’s colorful, zesty illustrations enhance Vermond’s lively tone.
