Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Not a fan of physics? Don't let that stop your kids from being amazed at how the world around them works. The stunning graphics in this science book will help them understand basic quantum physics (yep, really) while figuring out sonar sounds, electromagnetic rays and discovering the speed of light. Seriously impressive. * Smallish *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
