Description


Have you ever looked at the objects inside a curiosity box? What did you see and what did they feel like? Did you recognise some of them or were there things in there that you'd never seen before? Books that take the magical charm of collecting curiosities joined together with the science behind some of the wonders of the natural world. Children will be inspired to take a closer look at objects and the world around them and begin to question how and why nature designs things in certain ways.

The Human Body looks at some of the amazing parts of your body, some that you can see and some that are hidden inside you. Find out why your skin is so elastic, how your senses work and why yucky things like spots and sweat are actually important for a healthy body. Children will love discovering a bit more about the science behind what makes their own body so special.

Books that are brimming with science and encourage KS1 pupils to engage with core science and nature topics, while developing other key skills in thinking and reasoning in an utterly absorbing and charming way.
