Several of the TRY THIS sections involve real world maths which will please parents and teachers alike. The answers to these are found at the back alongisde a very useful glossary. It bridges KS2 & 3 science curricula quite well. This is a very well-produced book that would stand up to a lot of wear in a KS2/3 class or scholl library and would be a popular choice for those children who prefer to read non-fiction.
