A science book should feature a lucid writing style and the language should have the ability to attract the attention of the students. The primary motive of the writing should be to promote interest within the students and motivate them towards the depth of the subject. There should be suitable illustrations and examples to explain various phenomenon of science through which they will be able to understand the essence of the subject. Always encourage your children to borrow books from the library of their school.
Some science books are also available in series. You have to select very carefully the particular series that would suit your child. The most important categories of science books are Exact, Descriptive and Normal. Among the science subjects, physics and chemistry come under the Exact category; Anthropology and Biology fall under Descriptive category, and lastly, Astronomy and Geology are included among the Natural category. If your child wants to learn basic scientific theories and methods, there are separate textbooks, which are provided with fine illustrations and easy language.
A science book is written by scientists, researchers or professors. As a result, these books are provided with detailed and correct explanations that help a child to take deep interest in the subject. Generally, these books are written for the universal audience with proper scientific experiments and theories. This shows that the authors inherit genuine writing skills and techniques in presenting a theory to the audience. It seems a more difficult task for them to reach out with their explanations to the beginners who hardly carry with them any knowledge of the subject.
There are a handful of science books covering various subjects like books on astronomy by Carl Sagan, evolutionary biology by Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Dawkins, psychology by Donald Norman, linguistics and cognitive science by Steven Pinker, Noam Chomsky, and Robert Ornstein, and Desmond Morris on zoology and anthropology.
