Celebrate British Science Week with some of the best science books for children

It's British Science Week, a ten day celebration of science, technology and engineering. What better way to get children excited in science than with some our inspiring science books, on everything from Astronomy to Natural History, Chemistry to Maths.

Infographics: Space (£10.99, published April 2015)
What is a black hole?  How big is the universe?  Why is the Sun hot? Seeing is believing with this book that shows you the facts, the third in the Infographics series.

Rebel Science (£12.99, published February 2015)
If you think scientists are dull, boring egg-heads in white coats who hang about in labs and don’t have any friends… then you’re wrong. The big brainiacs of history were extraordinary clever, but that doesn’t mean they were always right. They made mistakes, they argued, they performed strange experiments. They took risks, they broke the rules, they were dangerous… They were rebels.

The Really Gross Body Book (£14.99, published March 2015)
This gorgeously gross interactive book is packed with fun facts on farts, snot, vomit, wee, spit and more bodily excretions! Find out how much snot we swallow in a year, how many times we fart in a lifetime, and whether it’s really true that some people use urine as a mouthwash...

Little Explorers: My Amazing Body (£8.99, published March 2015)
How fast do fingernails grow? How does breathing work? What’s really going on under the skin? In this first-information book, the first in the Little Explorers series, getting the answer is as easy as lifting the flaps. Discover the human body inside and out!

Animalium (Welcome to the Museum) (£20, published September 2014)
Welcome to the Museum, in the first of a series that brings a beautifully illustrated curated collection of exhibits together. This iconic book features a different branch of life in each chapter, from the simple sponge to the enormous elephant – no budding natural historian should be without this book!

How the World Began (£14.99, published September 2014)
The fifth title in the How It Works series, this covers billions of years from the formation of the universe to the modern day in a whistle-stop pop up history of the planet. As well as delving into the past, the book also encourages young readers to think for themselves about the future of the planet. It is sure to delight and inspire budding young scientists.
