5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic resource book from DK, 6 May 2012
This review is from: That's Life (Hardcover)
What is Life? This is the question that Robert Winston aims to answer in this book, aimed at children aged 8-14 years. Whenever I listen to Robert Winston when he appears on a television programme or when he presents a programme I always learn something. He always wants to share his knowledge with the viewers and I think he always explains things in manageable chunks to understand. This book is just that - full of bitesize information to enable use to understand how life began and what it is.

The book is split into five sections: The meaning of life; The variety of life; Living together; Secrets of survival; and The other side of life. It starts right from the beginning, 4.6million years ago and looks at how life began. It looks at the human building blocks - the cells and explains complex scientific procedures and structures in simple English that children can understand.

The wording in the book is pitched at 8-14 years and alot of diagrams and pictures are also included to explain the concepts and ideas within the book.

The book has a scrapbook feel to it - lots of colour, font type, pictures, fantastic photographs and jam packed full of useful information, in a style that children will be drawn to.

I would recommend this as a fantastic book for any child to have in their reference library and a must for every classroom library.

DK have done it again - published a fantastic book which children will enjoy reading and will learn lots from.
