The Little Guide to Science by Catherine De Duve (KateArt Books)

As a pair of complete science geeks, we love anything to do with science and we particularly love a pint-sized book that offers insights into just about every branch of science available...

We've been really impressed with Catherine De Duve's fantastic art history books, and here she takes a look at the world around us and the way we use science to investigate and understand our surroundings and even take a closer look at the inky blackness of space and the solar system too.

Our planet's history is also put under the microscope from the first single-celled organisms, right up to big stomping dinosaurs and beyond.

We take a look at how scientists look into fossil records, literally digging deep into earth's history underground to determine what species once roamed our world, and what caused them to die out so unexpectedly.

This is, of course, like catnip to kids. Books that spur their natural curiosity are wondrous and despite its tiny size, "The Little Guide to Science" packs a huge amount of amazing content between its covers.

Full of opportunities to explore, investigate and enjoy learning about the world around us, an utterly fabulous book for science-hungry kids. 

Charlotte's favourite bit: Learning about evolution and how life on earth changed over the course of prehistoric times until we emerged as hairy little apes!

Daddy's favourite bit: A brilliant learning resource but most of all, a fun book to really engage children's minds in the sciences.
