              A look at animals and plants from the point of view of their amazing scientific adaptations. Join bestselling author Steve Mould to uncover nature's greatest scientists, engineers, and mathematicians from plants that can count to architect insects. If you thought all scientists w...ear white coats and work in labs, think again! Meet amazing engineers, such as the spiders who build immense webs stretching over rivers; funky physicists, like the bats that can see with sound; and surprising chemists, such as the corpse flower that smells like smelly socks to attract insects to pollinate it! The science behind each genius adaptation is explained clearly in Steve Mould's trademark humorous style and you'll be amazed by nature's solutions to some of the world's trickiest problems. Additional biomimicry pages even show where we've copied nature to improve our own science and engineering, such as the streamlined nose of bullet trains, modelled on the shape of a kingfisher's beak. Clever Creatures is a brilliant introduction to some of nature's cleverest animals and plants. Perfect for children aged 7-9, it is filled with intriguing illustrations and spectacular photographs of the amazing, obscure, and downright bizarre. You'll never look at nature the same way again!

              Meet the bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes that are all around, but too small for us to see. Learn how they keep us and our world running. What do a squid that glows, fungus that grows, and tiny creatures in the soil under your toes all have in common? They're all p...art of the world of microbiology! In this awesome introductory book for kids, you'll find out about bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes. The Bacteria Book explores why we need bacteria, and introduces readers to its microbial mates - viruses, fungi, algae, and protozoa. Bacteria are the most important living organisms on Earth, and 99 per cent of them are helpful, not harmful. Without bacteria, we wouldn't have bread or cheese, and our bodies wouldn't be able to work how we need them to. Microbes keep us and our world running in surprising ways. This book will show you how, through real-life examples of microbiology in action. The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEAM subject that brings kids up-close with the big world of tiny science. With remarkable photography, kooky character illustrations, and lots of fun facts that toe the line between ew! and oh! , it's the only book on microbiology young scientists won't want to put down.

For every scientific concept the child learns they will be encouraged to find new ways to test it further. Fun questions, science games, and real-life scenarios make science relevant to children. In How to be a Scientist the emphasis is on inspiring kids, which means less time spent in stuffy labs and more time in the real world!
