Synopsis

Oscar and the Snail A Book About Things That We Use by Geoff Waring

This book presents a lively introduction to a Key Stage 1 Science topic - materials and their properties. Oscar is a curious kitten and when he finds a nest in the garden made of twigs and moss, he is full of questions about the things that we use. Luckily, Snail is nearby and together they discuss why we choose different materials to do different jobs, where materials come from and the different properties they have. This series has been specially designed with the assistance of education experts CLPE to support Key Stage 1 Science. The perfect starting place for young children to begin learning about how the world around us works. This book is part of an acclaimed series including Oscar and the Bat (9781406304985) and the 2006 NLA WOW! Award-winning Oscar and the Frog (9781406304961) and Oscar and the Moth (9781406304954).

Reviews

Geoff Waring's beautiful picture book [gives] enough information to satisfy a thirst for information within pictures that are full of the wonder that lies behind the science. The Guardian on Oscar and the Moth
