Each title in this series introduces children to an aspect of science that is part of their everyday world. Clear simple text works closely with top-quality photography and easy-to-understand diagrams to encourage learning. Each page is full of things for readers to notice, talk about and try out for themselves.
All titles have a comprehensive glossary and index, plus notes on how to use the books, in order to get the most out of the information they offer. Time explains units of time and how they can be measured. Colour diagrams show the movement of Earth around the sun, while separate chapters include time passing, from day to night and from season to season.
