In the frost-covered forest of early spring, fox is on a mission to find food for her three cubs. As they grow, she teaches them how to survive in the wild. Until one day, fox dies. Her body goes back to earth and grass and air, nourishing the world around her and bringing the forest to life. Death is not just an end, it's also a beginning. Fox: A Circle of Life Story answers the big scientific question: What happens when we die? Bringing together an evocative non-fiction narrative with breath-taking illustrations, this book will help parents and children to talk about life and death. It introduces the scientific concept that death leads to new life, and that this way of understanding the world is no less beautiful and awe-inspiring than traditional stories. Fox: A Circle of Life Story unites story and science to explain this big concept to children who have lost a pet or a loved one, or who simply are curious about death and what happens after we die.

Explore the laws and theories of physics in this accessible introduction to the forces that shape our Universe, our planet, and our everyday lives. Using a bold, graphic-led approach The Physics Book sets out more than 80 key concepts and discoveries that have defined the subject and influenced our technology since the beginning of time. Seven themed chapters examine the history and developments in areas such as energy and matter, and electricity and magnetism, as well as quantum, nuclear, and particle physics. Eureka moments abound: from Pythagoras's observations of the pleasing harmonies created by vibrating strings, and Galileo's experiments with spheres, to Isaac Newton's apple and his conclusions about gravity and the laws of motion. You'll also learn about Albert Einstein's insights into relativity, how the accidental discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation confirmed the Big Bang theory, the search for the Higgs boson particle, and why most of our Universe is missing. If you've ever wondered exactly how physicists formulated - and proved - these abstract concepts, The Physics Book is the book for you.

R301 R228 Discovery Miles 2 280 Save R73 (24%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Inventions aren't always easy. Sometimes a humble leaf can get in the way. Developers have learned that one of the big hold ups in the creation of self-driving cars is teaching the cars to recognize changes in foliage as they drive the same routes each day. Scientists have developed a flexible medical sensor using electrodes and regular chewing gum. Odd Science: Inventions is filled with weird and wacky facts that you've never heard before. Read about the trainers made of spider silk, wonder at the first record played in space and tell your friends about the robot built in 1937. There are facts about electricity being used as glue, facts about glow-in-the-dark cats and facts about nano-robots that can `swim' inside the body during biopsies! James Olstein beautifully illustrates these odd facts, and more, in a retro-inspired, quirky style. His designs aren't meant to be taken literally, but you'll laugh-out-load when you see a walking trashcan and wind towers made of carrots! Prepare to laugh, marvel and learn. Being a geek has never been so cool.
