Product Description

Review

'A hands-on science lesson! - Lancashire Evening Post; 'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells' - The Bookseller; 'I absolutely loved the interactivity of this 'lift the flaps' book... What's more it is not just a parade of facts - we find out about people and the history behind the inventions, essential context to make the science interesting' - Popular Science; 'Famous inventions often come about for strange reasons and this book shows how things were invented, often by chance, such as the sticky burrs on a dog's coat that led to the introduction of velcro. Lift the flaps (over 60 of them) to reveal intricate drawings which show the hidden workings inside inventions. Engines, flying machines, electricity and more - all explained in easy-to-understand language' - Parents in Touch;

I've bought a number of these See Inside books over the years for my grandson (now aged 8). Some are better written and designed than others, and I'm pleased to say that this is one of the better ones. (Grandson is the best reviewer judging by his responses and how long his interest is held.) (The best one in the series is See Inside Castles by the way - very amusing and well written for a younger child (aged 5 - 6).) See Inside Inventions is suitable for children aged 7 - 10, I would say.

Format: Hardcover
The book is detailed and informative, it is the same style as other flap books such as 'see underground' that were bought last year. It has kept our 7 year old son engrossed and reading for hours. It will be of interest for older children as well, bite sized chunks of information rather than long stories.

My son loves the Usborne flap series and this one doesn't disappoint. Although I find the information hard to understand for a 5 year old, as there are lots of names of inventors and lots of years, I suppose he is not that bothered. He takes whatever is useful for him as he loves to see how the "first things" looked like. The only problem now is sourcing a George Cayley glider plane model... :-)

Format: Hardcover
Famous inventions often come about for strange reasons and this book shows how things were invented, often by chance, such as the sticky burrs on a dog's coat that led to the introduction of velcro.. Lift the flaps (over 60 of them) to reveal intricate drawings which show the hidden workings inside inventions. Engines, flying machines, electricity and more - all explained in easy-to-understand language. What I like about this series is that the flaps are not just there as a gimic - they really do hide a multitude of information and pictures. Somehow, presenting it in this way makes it much easier for children to assimilate information, as they are not overwhelmed all in one go

My four year grandson loves it. There are hours of reading and exploring to be done with this book and then again and again.
