Young readers will find fall nonfiction from Kids Can Press chock full of information, excitement, and fun activities related to science, nature, and technology.

Look at That Building! A First Book of Structures is a brightly illustrated introduction to basic construction concepts for kids ages 4-7. A group of friends, eager to build a doghouse, heads to the library to learn about foundations, beams, windows, roofs, and more. Readers can construct their own mini-doghouse out of everyday materials using the instructions at the end of the book. Dinosaur lovers in the same age group will thrill to Ankylosaur Attack, an eye-popping story about a young ankylosaur (a heavy-plated plant-eater) who helps to defend an older animal against a Tyrannosaurus rex. Photo-realistic, computer-generated images dramatically highlight this dinosaur vs. dinosaur battle.

Motion, Magnets and More: The Big Book of Primary Physical Science offers fun activities to help readers ages 4-7 learn basic concepts of physical science. This simple, colorful introduction to materials, structures, forces, motion, and states of matter draws on kids’ everyday experience to explain why magnets stick to the fridge but not the window, how to fill a balloon without blowing into it, why triangles are stronger than squares, and much more.

The fun, hands-on science continues with Space Tourism, from the Machines of the Future series. Space enthusiasts ages 9-12 can blast off with this kid-friendly introduction to a growing industry. Readers learn about the past, present, and future of space travel as well as the science and human dimension behind it. Easy experiments demonstrate principles like gravity and centrifugal force, and activities show kids how to build a model space yacht, launch a space vacation plane, and more. Kids ages 8-12 find out how nature inspires technological innovation in Biomimicry: Inventions Inspired by Nature. Colorful, detailed illustrations, clear text, and scores of fascinating examples show readers how scientists look to nature for new ways to think about communication, medicine, transportation, energy, robotics, sustainability, and much more.
