Science in Action: The Senses - Taste

Author(s): Sally Hewitt

Picture Books

How can you taste? How does your mouth works? What are the parts allowing you to taste your food?

The ideal first introduction to the five senses, Science in Action explores the human body using fun experiments and activities. Senses provide all sorts of information about
what is going on around us. The activities in Science In Action encourage young readers
to understand how each of their senses work, for example by making their own sound
waves or trying a series of optical illusions. Clear and simple text helps explain tricky scientific topics such as how the tongue tastes different flavours and how our eyes work.

Using simple explanations and engaging photos, this book encourages children to think about how their senses work, while taking their first steps into scientific discovery.
