    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

    This book is obviously an Usborne book; it's overloaded with interesting information and tons of color pictures. But it also has something else: internet links. A great deal of science is packed in the book, with even more available online at the many quality websites chosen by Usborne. More than 1,000 internet links and 180 QR links are included. Perform more than 120 experiments and activities, and see video clips, diagrams, pictures, and other helpful online highlights. Sites allow you to see video clips of animals, hear animal sounds, build your own roller coaster, dissect a virtual frog, relive the story of landing on the moon complete with sounds, images, and slideshows, and so much more. All of science is covered in this book: physics, chemistry, biology, information technology, earth sciences, astronomy, anatomy, zoology, and Earth conservation. A wonderful resource even for those without online access. This book is available in two sizes (with identical content). There is a small format version(pb). This large-format hardcover version measures 8 3/4" W x 11" H. 448 pgs. ~ Stephanie

    When it comes to hands-on projects, there seem to be two kinds of people in the world: those who want to assemble all the pieces necessary in the least expensive way and those who just want a complete kit so they don't have to run around and purchase supplies. If you're one of the latter, you will appreciate the wide range of equipment and tools included in this kit, as well as the comprehensive experiment guide. Like other kits from Thames & Kosmos, this one is well-produced and includes quality materials and a full-color experiment manual. The manual includes instructions for completing 100 experiments in the areas of physical science, earth and space science, and life science with specific chapters for experiments on: water, air, heat, sound, forces, magnets, electricity, electromagnetism, light and shadow, optical instruments, plants and animals, colors, human body, earth and sun, and chemistry. Looking through the manual, I recognize many experiments that are common middle-school fare such as weighing balloons with different amounts of air to show that air does have weight, making an atomizer that displays Bernoulli's Principle, changing water to ice to water vapor, observing that water expands when frozen, observing sound waves on the surface of water, swinging a cup of water to observe centrifugal force, building simple circuits, making an electromagnet, using mirrors to explore rays of light, making a camera obscura, dying carnations by placing them in colored water, listening to your heartbeat, building a sundial and many more that are often seen in curriculums or experiment books at this level. All special equipment is included, as are common objects like balloons, straws, modeling clay and black paper. Materials needed are listed at the beginning of each activity, with materials in the kit in regular font and additional materials needed in italics. Because so much is included here, materials that you provide are "basics" like water, batteries, flashlights, newspaper, and scissors. With the breadth of topics covered, this is one science kit that you'll use again and again. – Jess
