Multi-Colored Glass Galileo Thermometer

Galileo discovered that as temperatures vary, a liquid's density also varies. The colored spheres in this column of clear liquid change positions with fluctuations in temperature. Much more interesting than your average thermometer.

Peter Sis

treeOfLife.JPG Peter Sis's illustrations are in a class of their own--combining traditional etching with and modern techniques. His illustrated biographies of Charles Darwin and Gallileo Galiliei are detailed and mesmerizing. He captures the brilliance of these two great thinkers, and adds his own. These two books are essentials for any library, for either children or grown. I bought them for myself, but my kids love them.

Visual Encyclopedia of Science

I love DK books, and their fantatic photo illustrations. While this book is really a reference, it's also lots of fun to cuddle up with your pre-reader and explore page after page of fascinating pictures. You can read the captions for the images that interest them. A great way to spark curiosity early, and get them excited about "looking it up".
