For 24 seasons and counting, How It’s Made has been an enthralling presence on Science Channel, educating its viewers on the process of making everything from bread to bifocals and breaking down complex ideas and processes with language everyone can understand.
A “how-it’s-made” guide for relentlessly curious kids, science writer Tom Gerencer’s book teaches young readers how the items they love and use every day come to be, with simple yet captivating descriptions and full-color illustrations and photographs. Each chapter focuses on one specific item of particular interest to middle-grade readers, such as airplanes, gummy vitamins, or basketballs, and break down exactly what happens at the factory to make things tick.
