SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A beautifully produced, full-colour book on imagination and engineering.
  • Focuses on a hands-on approach, with plenty of things to make and do.
  • Materials for the experiments might be hard to obtain, but can be ordered from the cloudmentor.in website
  • One wishes there could have been a girl on the cover, given the dearth of women in STEM.

CONCLUSION

A fascinating book for pre-teen science nerds who love to figure out how things work.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
