Here's what you get:
Fun Science: A guide to life, the universe and why science is so awesome.
Quadrille Publishing c/o Chronicle Books
8.88 x 9.33
Mostly black and white with some illustrations and coloured pages.
The first forty pages are dedicated to the big bang theory or other theories as to how the universe could have come into being. I admittedly believe that God brought everything into being by his word and touch, but that in the midst of theories there are often grains of truth that can help explain the science so I approach these theories with skepticism. I have learned over the years tho science behind God's actions, like how point a makes point b possible. So I wouldn't completely toss these pages, but my advice is to read and weed out the interesting nuggets. :)
Also, he uses words at times that I wouldn't use. Some folks might see it as inappropriate language, but I struggle a bit, for a learned in my college years, that people have different sensibilities about words depending on their culture. For instance, just as I grew up saying "S__T" without it being a BAD word and don't bat an eye when someone says it, but others mindsets are different.
I would suggest that you read through the whole reproduction chapters with your children, especially if you are bible based in your teaching. Charlie has failed to realize that people and nature are distinct from each other. :)
I say this because it's fascinating how he weaves different snippets of information together. Seriously...just fascinating. Science is fascinating and fun, and this book helps point that out.
