4.0 out of 5 stars Great book with lots of scientific info!, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: George's Secret Key to the Universe (Paperback)
I bought this book to use with my class of Year 5's. Just finished reading it myself and really enjoyed it - now very excited about reading it to my class! The story provides a great framework for learning about space and the universe. None of the science is 'dumbed down' for children, and yet this book manages to explain concepts that can be quite difficult to grasp, such as black holes and the life cycle of stars. The reader learns about different aspects of the universe as the main character George comes across them on his trips into space. This gives all the information on space a context and meaning - which is very valuable as often learning about space can just become learning a load of facts which are then quickly forgotten. As an adult I learnt more about space from this book than I ever had from anywhere else! The book also touches on the positives and negatives of science - such as how it can be used to both destroy our world and help save our world. Would greatly recommend this to anybody - either children with an interest in space, or teachers wanting to find a space-themed book to read to their class!
