The Royal Society Young Person’s Book Prize
Each year the Royal Society invites children to judge six books chosen by adults. We needed to choose the best one for the competition. We had to select our favourite books and judge them with different criteria such as how easy it is to read and if it appeals to you. To help us decide we rated them out of five stars and counted up our results to see what was our favourite book. Sometimes we didn’t agree and we had to compare the number of ratings that people gave so that we could pick the score.
Our favourite book was Rebel Science by Dan Green. It is set out in different sections with fun pictures to help understand. It contains lots of interesting stories and facts about different scientists and their investigations. The other books are just about one thing. Rebel Science is set out nicely and is exciting to read.
