Whizzing balloons, balancing frogs, diving teddy bears, sunken treasure, gooey chocolate cakes and one very big, pink elephant make it really fun to learn about science. From straightforward investigations into forces and materials to simple experiments about the body, sight and sound, this book will give children all the basic investigative skills that they will need for their first years at school. Find out which is the fastest animal on Earth, make a bucket of water defy gravity, use heat and cold to prepare crunchy chocolate cakes, and much more.
