- Title Knowledge Encyclopedia Science!

This extraordinary encyclopedia fuels your imagination with its truly ground-breaking visual approach to the world around us. Jaw-dropping 3D computer-generated images burst from the pages, detailing the tiny atoms that make up our Universe and the incredible forces that keep it all together. From mixtures and metamorphosis to friction and flying, the wonders of biology, chemistry, and physics are brought to together in one must-have volume. Travel to the tropics to see feeding flamingoes, dive deep underwater to swim with a blue whale, and rush to the racetrack to lift the top on a Formula 1 car.
I’ve been dipping in and out of some of the Dorling Kindersley books that are aimed at kids, and although this one is a beginner’s guide to science, I really think it’s aimed at anyone who wants to kick start their knowledge at any age. It has the great illustrations and picture layouts that you expect from DK, and structures the subject into sensible areas - what makes up the earth, chemicals, nature, space, and more. Highly recommended, and I notice there’s a similar book on space that I’m going to have to check out next.
