You probably pick up a pencil every day: but have you ever wondered how it's actually made? From chocolate bars to violins, "See How It's Made" lifts the lid on all kinds of everyday objects, foods and toys, revealing the amazing ways they are designed and manufactured. Venture behind the scenes right into the heart of busy factories to see the step-by-step processes that turn sand into glass, give a football its bounce and squeeze toothpaste into a tube. You'll even find out how this book was put together!
It’s morning. You pull on a T-shirt and drink a glass of apple juice. You do these things without giving them a second thought.
But how is your T-shirt made? And the glass, and the apple juice for that matter… This book answers these questions and many more about the things that you use all the time.
So many surprising ingredients and so much thought, work, and special equipment go into making everyday things. Did you know that half of a scoop of ice cream is air, that glass is made from melted sand, and that a special robot helps to manufacture plastic toy bricks?
