It was inevitable that science would join arithmetic, manners and the rest, and prove to be fun when presented by the prolific and inspired Munro Leaf. In lively text, accompanied by the familiar quasi-cartoon illustrations, this enthusiastic narrative explain some of the fundamentals of the scientific principle and indicates practical methods of testing each statement empirically. A lively curiosity, plus a rubber ball, an orange and a clothesline provide the essentials he demands of his young scientist. Add to that an appetite for Leaf's bold and entertaining approach and you have it,- a real help, both in presentation and in the encouragement of further reading.
