Description - The Science Book for Girls by Valerie Wyatt

Studies show that many girls' interest in science falls off during the preteen years. In an effort to keep girls tuned in to science, this book demonstrates that science is fun --- and that it is for girls. In this title in the Books for Girls series, lively text and illustrations help kids investigate what makes their toast turn brown in the morning and why their stomachs rumble. They'll find out how to collect and compare snowflakes, discover how genetics relates to family traits and much more. With brain teasers, puzzles and experiments in astronomy, physics, zoology, botany, geology and chemistry, The Science Book for Girls will help build science skills and confidence, as well as introduce readers to women who have exciting careers in science. With a distinctly female slant, this stimulating book gives girls a positive and non-threatening look at science and science careers --- although there's nothing stopping ?other intelligent beings? from taking a peek, too!
