Science: Visual Encyclopedia
Always a good resource, DK offers this visual encyclopedia to complement all your science topics. This visual reference takes you inside things you might not normally see in the world of science. Chapters cover the areas of matter, materials, forces and machines, energy, light, electricity and magnetism, living organisms, and great discoveries. Every topic has a two-page spread with photos, illustrations and summaries of information. My favorite part of every DK book is the collection of beautiful and fascinating photos see a photo of an explosion, streaks of colored light, lightning, chloroplasts, and much more. Our world is beautiful, but we don't see so much of it. Take time to see the visuals of the science world! 304 pgs with index, hc.
