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.

This is an excellent book and is pitched at just the right age range, I have 2 daughters within this age range and they both love the book, it is helping expand their reading as well as their understanding of science. its format is great and it has bought a smile to their faces and an enjoyment of what can be a difficult subject for children to understand. I am very pleased I purchased this book and have had enjoyment in helping my children gain some understanding of science and the world around them.
