So many great moments. One is the author's memory of his father reading to him about dinosaurs and stopping to draw a picture in his mind of how big the stats really are (imagine his head coming into the top floor window of the house except his head is too big to get into the window). Another is that a vast no. of Harvard grads have wrong concept of seasonal climate cause. Fantastic 3D demos of earth/moon/sun experiments. My 4 year old was very taken with Gallileo which I would never have thought of discussing with her until I read this book.
This book single handedly changed the way I deal with questions from young children.
Children are naturally curious about the world. With this book, you will help your child discover and understand aspects of astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, and phychology.
And there is much more here than many good, simple experiments. Science is more than an area of interest; a basic understanding of science and the scientific method helps us in all sorts of ways. Shermer helps you get your child on the path to rational thinking.
Shermer, like James Randi and Carl Sagan, is a strong voice against pseudoscience and the occult. He has written a book that is a building block to make your child a clear-thinking adult.
