Monkey is getting really interested in anything to do with science and engineering these days. He is like a little sponge, soaking up information, storing it for future reference and then recalling it weeks and even months later. When I discovered The Little Guide to Science recently, I thought it would be a great little reference book to add to our collection.
The Little Guide to Science is being published in English in March this year by Happy Museum and is a great factual guide for children as they discover more about the world around them.
The 31 page paperback book discussing everything from microscopes to fossils, storms and electricity to optical illusions.
We’ve seen a Morse Code machine at a couple of museums we’ve visited over the last year but I couldn’t remember the letter sequencing. Now he has a book which explains the code we’ve been trying out our own signals using this book.
The information with the book is shown in a clear and concise way with lots of illustrations, making it easy for children to understand. Each section has a quiz element or exercise to be completed, so you can see how well the concept is being digested.
We were at a birthday party recently and I was entertaining Monkey and a few other children whilst we were waiting for the party food to be ready. They’d not seen what happens when you rub a balloon on your head. Monkey thought my resulting hairdo was hysterical. I’ve since been able to explain the process with The Little Guide of Science to assist me.
Monkey has been really engaged with this book, it’s a great educational tool in my opinion and a bargain at £6.99.
