The I Wonder Why Series is a set of books created to spark children’s interest in the natural world and answer questions almost before they’ve been asked! In this book, the questions are about the very basics of science – what happens to water when we boil it? What is energy? Why can we see colors? How does sound work? Why do rainbows happen? Etc., etc.
Here are a few fun facts I learned from this book.
– It’s easier to float in salty water than in fresh water – in fact, swimmers can’t sink in the Dead Sea, the world’s saltiest sea.
– When soap is combined with water, the soap weakens the surface tension of the water making it stretchier – and easier to blow into bubbles!
Conclusion. A good book to kickstart scientific interest in children.
