            It's a wrinkly, spongy mass the size of a cauliflower that sits in our heads and controls everything we do! Welcome to the world of the brain... Packed with colourful illustrations and fascinating facts, this fun book begins by looking at the anatomy of the human brain, its diffe...rent regions, and what they do. It also covers the rest of the nervous system and how nerve cells communicate. The wealth of other topics includes the senses, how we learn, memories, thinking, emotions, evolution and development of the brain, how our brain sets us apart from other animals, dreaming, and things scientists still don't fully understand - such as consciousness. In addition, this accessible introductory guide touches on how the brain copes with injury, aging, and the diseases that affect it. Written by neurobiologist Dr Liam Drew, The Brain Book is an authoritative, clearly written, reference book that's up to date with the latest in brain research. It is a perfect addition to any STEAM library and ideal for any young, budding scientist.

            Up in the Air celebrates nature in a different way! By encouraging children to look, listen and observe the world above and around them. From the patterns of clouds to the constellations, the cacophony of the dawn chorus to the individual chirrup of a sparrow, the butterflies tha...t flutter and the rustle of the leaves in the trees, this beautifully illustrated book encourages children to look, listen, and feel the nature all around them. It looks at the habitats above our heads - the towering forests around the world that help create the air that we breathe, the animals that live above and around us in the trees and the animals that fly through the air - birds, insects, and bats. It also develops sky-watching skills - from reading the patterns of the clouds, to looking at the night sky. The book also has a strong conservation message - the animals and plants that live above us are vital for the planet - whether they are pollinating plants or keeping our atmosphere clear.

            The perfect introduction to English vocabulary for children aged 6-9 as they take the first steps towards learning English as a foreign language. This beautifully illustrated vocabulary book for children introduces your child to the essentials of English vocabulary. Each day from... Monday to Thursday, English for Everyone Junior: 5 Words a Day presents your child with five new words to learn and practise, using the English for Everyone visual methodology. Over the course of a year, your child will build up a vocabulary of 1,000 of the most commonly used English words. All the vocabulary is sorted into themes that reflect children's everyday lives (such as toys, clothes, and food), and each set of words is accompanied by a beautiful illustration that helps your child to fix those words in their memory. The daily test yourself exercises utilize cleverly designed flaps which hide the words your child has just learned. English for Everyone Junior: 5 Words a Day provides the necessary foundation for children who are about to start studying English at school, as well as solid support for those who are already learning the language. English for Everyone Junior: 5 Words a Day covers all the vocabulary used in the Cambridge Young Learners Exams and more, and corresponds to bands pre-A1 through to A2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
