What is dust? Where does it come from? Where is it going? Is it inside us? What should we do about it?
Why can't I climb up walls like Spiderman? Why do I glide so fast on the slide? What would it feel like to walk on the moon?
Have you ever seen an earthworm's poop? What do earthworms eat? Do they have teeth? Why do earthworms come out of their tunnels after a storm?
A cabbage butterfly laid 100 eggs. Why did only 76 eggs hatch? Why did only 8 make it to cocoons? In the end, how did only 1 become a butterfly?
Why is my baby brother so small? Why am I so big? Why am I growing?
These five beautifully-illustrated books are the newest additions to a 40-book series known as 蒲公英科学绘本系列 (pú gōng yīng kē xué huì běn xì liè) Dandelion Science Picture Book Series.
Translated from Korean, this is a bestselling informational book series in China. The vivid illustrations and engaging storytelling invite little ones to explore the science in their everyday life.
In addition to My First Discovery Series, these Science Around Me books are wonderful additions to a curious child's science book collection. Children will enjoy making connections between their explorations in the real world and the worlds they explore in these books.

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children ages 6+ who are conversational in Chinese will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": Although the text is limited, the vocabulary is expansive and not repetitive. There are also some scientific and technical terms. Children may be able to read this set independently if they know about 1000+ Chinese characters. It will definitely help build a beginner reader's vocabulary.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all 5 books included in this set.
Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by herself. Looking for a toy that is both cool and educational? Consider Luka!
In total, Luka reads 30,000 Chinese children's picture books and 6,000 English children's books. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
