Vicki Cobb, one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE science authors, has written a new science book for kids called What's the BIG Idea? Amazing Science Questions for the Curious Kid. This is another science great from the master!!
There are four big ideas in this book that are tackled by a series of questions:· Motion—Why can’t you stand an egg on its end? Why doesn’t the moon fall to earth? What is a swinging object good for?
· Energy—Do hot things weigh more than cold things? Why is the sky blue? Why not green or yellow? Does water that boils faster cook faster?
· Matter—Which weighs more: a pound of feathers or a pound of gold? Why does an ice cube float? How much does air weigh?
· Life—What makes a living thing a living thing? Why are plants green and blood red? Why can’t I live forever?
