What does the smell of baking bread or the fizz in your pop have to do with science? Lots. Science is all around you, even in the simplest things. Change It! takes the physics of matter – solids, liquids and gases – and transforms it into an enjoyable and easy-to-understand first science book.

Change It! is part of the Primary Physical Sciences series. These books include easy-to-read text, hands-on activities, energetic illustrations and a special section for parents and teachers with more activity ideas and information. This series was created with the cooperation of a Primary Science consultant and fits science curricula in the largest states and provinces.

“The description of… [each] concept being introduced is appropriate for the intended audience and is often presented in a manner that tests children’s understanding… There are too few books like this available for young children. I recommend the “Primary Physical Science” books to parents and to school librarians responsible for adding important books to their library’s collection. Highly recommended.” - Canadian Materials


“An enjoyable and easy-to-understand first science book…” - Books for Growing Minds

“It is often difficult to find a book on any aspect of physical science that is suitable for very young children. The Primary Physical Sciences Series by Kids Can Press fills this important niche. “ - National Science Teachers’ Association – “NSTA Recommends” list
