World of Science Adventures with Energy Book


Reviews by Educator


‘The Adventures with Energy’ is cleverly written using very relatable experiences of three separate families with children studying in the same school. The scientific principles and concepts of energy are clearly explained through their travels or daily encounters, with well-illustrated drawings, including how a nuclear energy plant works and the flow of energy on earth. There are many fun and intriguing facts scattered throughout the stories which even an adult reader will find fascinating. The inclusion of some family pets and how they interact with the human characters with humour in the narratives is also quite enjoyable. The ‘Think like a Scientist’ segments are effective in piquing curiosity, and the final page of concept map rounds up the science comic books very nicely!

Thank you for "Adventures with Energy"! I’m so heartened to see my eldest enjoying the comics and learning science concepts through a light-hearted manner. I always think big concepts should be explained and presented to kids in a way which they can absorb easily. This book definitely nailed it! Author uses familiar landmarks and locations in Singapore to set the stage for concept explanations. This resonates very well with my son. Whenever he reads something familiar to him, he goes “I know this! I’ve been there!” Read the book and experience it for yourself - learning science can be fun!
