1001+ Fantastic Facts About Science
This is a science book called a pocket-pedia. It’s small, but not small enough to put in your pocket unless you have really big pockets. There are a lot of interesting facts in it. “Inventions and Discoveries” is my favorite chapter. There are six chapters. The “Living Things” chapter talks about cells and microbes and creatures. In the “Invisible Science” chapter, the thing about wind never blowing in a straight line is interesting. Saturn would float in an enormous bathtub. That fact is in the “Earth and Space” chapter. I also think it is funny how Uranus was almost named Planet George. In the “Your Body” chapter, I think it’s interesting that Charles Osborne hiccuped for sixty-eight years. The “Matter and Reactions” chapter tells about radioactive bananas. I think it is weird. My favorite facts are why hot water freezes faster than cold water, how microwaves were invented, and what computer viruses and malware are. I think the illustrations are fun and cute. There are activities. I’d like to read more pocket-pedias. I think this book is good for people who like science.
