Excellent book - Every Primary School and Secondary School on this planet needs it.

In May of this year, I bought this book for my little girl who is in Year 4 but my older daughter who is in Year 10 has taken over. They both love it!

The book is very clear, easy to read and self-explanatory. My little one loves science. She tells me that she would like to go to space when she grows up.

I have told my friends about this book and would strongly recommend every school in this county to have it to enable children have a better insight into things like the weather, seasons, tides and many more.

This book is nothing but a breakthrough. Well done to the Author!”
