If you're struggling to find some great books for kids that are both entertaining and informative then this list of science books might come to you rescue.
Having looked through the list, a few of the books stand out for me and look rather fun.
Pond Walk is one of them and aimed at littlies aged between four and seven; a cute little book for budding biologists complete with silly jokes to keep things light.
Eleven Experiments that Failed details, well, eleven experiments that failed! Such as: Can a kid survive the winter on ketchup-covered snowball? I'm assuming that no kids were harmed during the quest to discover the answer to this one *grin*
Nature Adventures is all about nature spotting wherever you are - whether it's the city, the countryside or whilst you're mooching along on the beach - and is aimed at slightly older kids aged between six and nine.
I rather like the look of 'In the Bag - Margaret Knight Wraps It Up!' - it tells the story of Margaret Knight, a girl living in the 1850s who started inventing things at the age of 12 and went on to invent a machine that made flat bottomed paper bags!
Some of the books might be too American in reference for our English market, but the ones I've highlighted above should be worth a look at.
Hope that adds a few more Christmas present ideas to the list of potential things to buy when you can't bear the thought of another toy with bells or whistles on it!
