Third volume in the Storytelling Schools Series

Science Through Stories is a collection of stories hand-picked to engage young learners with the awe-inspiring world of science. Traditional tales rub shoulders with historical stories and stories that have been specially written for this book, all of which have been classroom tested. Each tale is written in a storyteller’s voice to make it easier to learn and retell orally. The stories are organised into subjects, and come with engaging and inclusive ways to link them to science teaching. Perfect for a Storytelling School that wants to expand its repertoire, or for any science teacher interested in trying something different.

“Wow, double and triple wow, this is an absolutely fantastic book! It is so well conceived and written and works on so many levels. What a great start to the wonderful world of science and discovery. I cannot praise it highly enough. It deserves to become an instant classic.”—Dr. George McGavin FLS FRGS, author, academic, television science presenter and explorer

“Without science, we are lost. Without story, we are trapped alone in the darkness of ourselves. For too long, these companions have wandered on separate tracks. This book takes one positive step towards bringing them together as travelling companions.”—Pie Corbett, from the Foreword

“A fantastic resource, well worth the investment, that links to English as well as science teaching.”—Karen Faux, Primary Teacher Update

“… use the approach, dip into this treasure chest and even develop your own stories to match your current science ideas. The children will thank you for it.” —Anne Goldsworthy, primary science expert
