Cats React to Science Facts
WINNER OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY YOUNG PEOPLE’S BOOK PRIZE 2020
Share in the wonderment of science with a crew of crazy cats and measure your amazement, awe and disgust alongside their furry feline faces!
Like every topic, science becomes more interesting when cats are involved. Cats React to Science Facts is an engaging and fun way to understand the world of science. It’s just purrfect! A vast cast of feline friends take us on a tour of the core areas of science from outer space and the human body, to forces and materials. Bitesize text, fun photos, diagrams, dollops of humour and a react-o-meter all help to make science memorable and fun to learn.
This book is a great gift for cat lovers and science students aged 7 and beyond, covering key science topics in a unique way.
Did you know that temperatures on the sun can reach 15 million degrees centigrade in the sun's core? You've got to be kitten me! Or that yelling for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days would produce enough energy to heat a nice cat-puccino? H(me)ow is that possible? Izzi Howell is clearly some kind of genius for combining a plethora of amusing and cute cat pics and genuinely "wow!" scientific facts into one catty collection. After each fact (selected from topics as diverse as balancing forces, circuits, photosynthesis and global warming), readers can laugh along with feline funnies and see if they agree with the React-o-Meter. It's hard to express just how brilliant this book is: think all your favourite funny cat GIFs combined with science, and it has a great design and an accessible approach. It's a perfect book for primary school or home, which will spark conversations and questions as well as containing plenty of "aww" appeal. Never fear: there's also a Claw-ssary and a Kitten-dex at the end. -- Anna McKerrow * BookTrust *
