Journey to Black Hole by Hari Joshi
This is one of the two books written by Hari, who is a very good friend of mine. I have been a part of the writing and publishing of this book, so my review may be a little biased. The book has been written for the kids to explain them the basic scientific principles in an interesting manner.
The author takes the kids to a journey in the outer space, and starts by saying that he has asked ‘Einstein’ to relax the rules for the day so that they can travel at a speed faster than the speed of light. In a very interesting manner he explains the concept of temperature, function of space suit, the way a airplane flies and rocket pushes itself in the space, the concept of atmosphere and how it protects us. He explains all the planets and how they were discovered, what is their size relative to the size of the earth. He goes out of Milky Way and explains galaxies.
Book is interspersed with interesting cartoons, to keep the topics light. I think it would make an interesting reading for kids who are reading these concepts in school but are not able to relate to them. The concepts are fundamental, but the way they are presented is interesting.
Since Hari published this book himself, it is not available at book stores.
