The Everyday Journeys of Ordinary Things

Libby Deutsch Valpuri Kerttula

About the book

Young children are full of questions about how the world works; the processes and machinations behind the scenes. Why does a light come on when you flick a switch? How can cheese from the supermarket have come out of a cow? What happens when you send a text? Where does your poo go when you flush?(!) All very good questions, and all explained—along with many more—in The Everyday Journey of Ordinary Things. With graphic, flowing illustrations and clear, colloquial chunks of text, each process is explained from its early beginnings to a satisfying conclusion. Alongside physical processes, readers are also introduced to the journeys of more abstract concepts such as information and money, as well as ecologically important processes including recycling and the water cycle. Visually arresting, informative and accessible, this is the book for every child who ever wondered, “How?”
