Description

Join Harriet, Darwin's pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger's indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together.

Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions - how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery?Harriet and Milton start their investigation with trying to discover when humans started asking these questions.

First stop on the quest is cave paintings - who did them? What did they mean, and what can they show us about our ancestors? Step into Harriet and Milton's time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery.

Written by Julia Golding, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006.

Very interesting read. Breaks down some very complex scientific topics into an easy-to-understand reading for kids with some nice illustrations peppered throughout. I can't wait to get this into my sixth grade science classroom for my early finishers.

Pretty cool story/science book for kids! Various topics that would be of interest to children are introduced by time traveling tortoise and cat! Begins with human origin to cave paintings to dna, scientists who study us and the world we live in, things science got wrong and right! All written in simple terms kids 4th grade up should be able to understand! Nice list of websites at the end for kids to look up more info. Good read, teachers should take a look and parents maybe purchase for their curious kids!

This is the first book in the Curious Science Quest, and in this one, we find Harriet and Milton arguing about whether science and faith are completely different things. To determine who is right, the two use a time machine to go back to the very beginning and find out. This journey takes the reader to France to learn about caves filled with evidence of earlier civilizations found by children. Milton and Harriet also meet Lucy, explore genetic inheritance, and about the birth of humanity. While filled with more "science" than "religion" it starts off the series nicely, but a little slow. I would recommend this book for a little older reader, or to be read on its own. It is not necessary to read these in order.

Thank you NetGalley and Lion Children's for the opportunity to read an advance reader copy.
