Summary: Professor Astro Cat takes readers on a tour through the world of physics. After announcing that physics holds the answers to many questions (“Why is the sky blue?” “How does a boat float?”), he covers many of the basics of physics, including gravity, sound, light, atoms, matter, energy, and more. Each two-page spread of this oversize book has a dizzying array of graphics giving facts, answers to questions, and real-life examples. This is a British import, so there are some British spellings and measurements. A glossary-index is included at the end. 56 pages; grades 2-6.
Pros: A very complete introduction to physics, explained in a kid-friendly but not condescending way, with eye-catching illustrations throughout.
Cons: It will take a dedicated science fan or some adult support to get through all the content here.
