about

This Book Thinks You’re a Scientist, developed by the Science Museum, London, as a complement to their new interactive gallery for children, explores seven key scientific areas: force and motion, electricity and magnetism, earth and space, light, matter, sound, and mathematics. Each spread centers on an open-ended question or activity, with space on the page for the child to write, draw, or interact with the book. Bend water with static power. Pack a suitcase for a trip to space. Design a new musical instrument. At the end of the book, there is a section for children to record their own guided independent investigations, including surveys and space to log the results of their experiments.

Hand-drawn illustrations and a collage-style photographs encourage creativity and help children to think like a scientist by noticing details, questioning everything, and dreaming up new ideas.

Harriet Russell is a London- based illustrator and a graduate of Central Saint Martins. Her clients include The New York Times, and she is the author of eight books with Corraini Edizioni.

Editorial Reviews

Playfully illustrated with sketchlike cartoons and doctored photos, this activity book is inspired by Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery, an interactive exhibit opening at the Science Museum in London in October 2016. Seven core subjects are addressed through simple activities [that] encourage imagination, curiosity, and careful observation. Readers are invited to add their observations and conclusions into the scrapbook-style pages. — Publishers Weekly
