Usborne First Illustrated Science Dictionary
What a charming way to gently introduce essential science concepts to your three- to eight-year-old! The Usborne First Illustrated Science Dictionary, with its hundreds of bright illustrations and useful examples, will captivate pre-readers and readers alike. If you set aside a smidgen of each day to read a page or two to your child, you’ll be amazed at how much he will absorb.

The clear, simple definitions to over 350 key terms and concepts are the very ones he will encounter in the years to come.

He’ll explore many areas of science: Living Things – senses, reproduction (no scary details), keeping healthy, and habitats; Materials – natural and manmade, solids, liquids, and gas; Forces – starting forces, stopping forces, and speed; Light, Sound, and Electricity – opacity, transparency, vibrations, instruments, circuits, switches, and sockets; Space – meteoroids, astronauts, seasons, and orbits; and Scientific Investigations – measurements, recording, and experiments. Readers will find Usborne First Illustrated Science Dictionary both an engaging read-through and an excellent reference tool.

    Fun science book June 7, 2016
    Reviewer: john calhoon from GREEN BAY, WI United States  
    My daughter purchased this book with her Christmas money.  She is 3 and didn't receive any of the super cool science stuff she asked for.  She really loves this book, with her interests, we mainly focus on certain sections and have not made it all the way through yet.  But the illustrations are nice, and I appreciate, the way they have simplified some of the abstract concepts and relationships.  My only, complaints, is I wish they would have included, some more of the vocabulary. I just add them in on my own.  Overall nice, and a great purchase.

    Love Usborne and this is no exception January 13, 2016
    Reviewer: Linda  
    Usborne makes wonderful books and this one is no exception. My son loves this book and uses it often. He loves that he has a "science book" like his sister to look up facts.

    Learning lots October 9, 2015
    Reviewer: Tiffany D.  
    I purchased this as part of our Kindergarten curriculum. My 5 year old son always asks, "do we have Science today?" He really enjoys the short explainations of very interesting topics. He has retained a lot from this book. I hear him restating things he's learned all the time. On side by side pages there are four sections. We would read one section each day with nothing on Fridays. He was eager to read more, so we now do two pages a few days a week.

    Nice book January 20, 2015
    Reviewer: Catherine E.  
    My almost 5 year old daughter really enjoys this book. We have fun looking through and reading it together. It's also a nice reference book, if you are working on a science project and come across a word that you can't figure out how to easily describe for a 4 or 5 year old - just look up the definition in this book! Nice, colorful illustrations. Would say you could use it for kids up to about 7 or 8?
