ACHUKA Book of the Day Thu 11 Jun 2o20
The first book for younger children to attempt to explain the unseen but powerful natural forces that govern life on our planet. A fascinating combination of natural history and scientific principles.
There are sounds no human ear can hear, scents no-one can smell, colours our eyes cannot detect, waves of radiation that pass right through us without our noticing, but known and used by many different animal species. They have dangers as well as uses, but are vital to all life on Earth.
Fourteen colourful spreads display the impact on human and animal life of microwaves; ultra-violet and infra-red light; electromagnetic waves; ultrasound and infrasound and scents and smells beyond human detection.
