The Way Science Works

Sharon Anne Holgate, Author, Robin Kerrod, Author, Jayne Parsons, Editor DK Publishing (Dorling Kindersley) $24.99 (160p) ISBN 978-0-7894-8562-5
From how to filter water laced with gravel, sand and charcoal to Einstein's theory of relativity, young scientists will find all they need to know in The Way Science Works: Discover the Secrets of Science with Exciting, Accessible Experiments by Robin Kerrod and Sharon Ann Holgate. Eight well-organized sections brim with information, color photographs and fun experiments like how to make a polymer slime and an electromagnet out of a screwdriver, battery and copper wire; easy-to-read icons designate whether kids can do them alone or with an adult. A few should only be demonstrated in a lab. Brief sidebars introduce important scientists and explain how their work shaped history. (Apr.)
