'Thought-provoking and entices the reader to take a discerning look at science.'
Claire Garven, MA Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK.

˜An approach to planning and teaching primary science that gives children permission to question their own preconceptions. This enables teachers to encourage children to actively think and discuss what they see, and give reasons for their developing scientific ideas. Strongly recommended for teachers who want their children to learn to think scientifically.'
Jane Gibson, Senior Lecturer and Coordinator of primary science in ITE at the University of St Mark and St John (Marjon), UK
