美國在Obama上任後力推科學基礎教育,美國各州都將科學新知排入幼稚園的學習大綱中。這部分的計劃名為STEM。基本上,STEM是ScienceTechnology, Engineering and Math的簡寫。

 

延續去年出版的The Street Beneath My Feet,繪本設計使用開頁式延展,讓小讀者仔細觀察自然現象,了解這些在我們頭以上的自然現象。與其他科學繪本最大的不同,書中文字描述與展頁延伸引導小讀者能夠更清楚的明瞭這些自然現象的相對位置。

這一次是由眼睛以上開始觀察....

由城市中建築物上的避雷針。離開地球10公里空氣開始稀薄,是飛機飛行的高度。離開地球20公里是臭氧層....離開100公里開始便是外太空,衛星、太空站是你可以在這個範圍看到的。離開38萬公里你可以看到月球....接下來便是太陽系的行星...然後就是更多其他的銀河系....接下來翻到繪本的背面...我們開始回到太陽系,這一次看到流星、彗星,再拉近一點遇到了暴風雨,各種鳥類,各種雲....拉近到4000公尺開始遇到完飛傘的大人們,再拉近一點入眼簾的便是在你四周飛舞的蝴蝶。

 

Have you ever looked up and wondered what's going on high up in the skies above your eyes? Take a journey up into the air, through the atmosphere, way out into space, and back down to Earth in this richly illustrated concertina book.

Zoom past the technology that fills our skies, from helicopters, fighter jets, weather balloons, to satellites, hang-gliders, and hot-air balloons. Discover the insects and animals that whizz through the skies, explore the layers of the atmosphere, and travel through the solar system and out to the galaxies far beyond. The follow up to The Street Beneath My Feet, which dug down to the center of the Earth, this expansive concertina book opens out to an impressive length of over 8 feet, perfect for inquisitive young minds.

Begin your journey from the sidewalk of a busy city. Look up beyond the traffic lights, utility wires, and skyscrapers. Unfold the connected pages to reveal the incredible man-made sights that you would see 12 miles above (a weather balloon), 30 miles above (a rocket blasting a capsule into space), 62 miles above (a space plane and satellites), 250 miles above (the International Space Station), 235,000 miles above (the Moon), and through our Solar System. 

Turn to the top of the other side to make your way beyond the Solar System to the hundreds of billions of galaxies filled with stars and planets we haven't discovered yet. Then start your journey back down through the amazing natural wonders you would see 6,200 miles above (a comet), 55 miles above (meteoroids burning up as they enter Earth's atmosphere), 7 miles above (a cumulonimbus cloud bringing thunder and lightning), 1 mile above (migrating storks), and down through the mountains, past trees, bats, and butterflies to finally reach the ground again—this time in a grassy clearing of a forest, where you can imagine yourself lying on your back wondering at the thought of the whole universe above your head. 

From jet trails to comets' tails, enjoy amazing sights as you journey through the skies.
