Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A colorful volume that is wide in scope but shallow in content. Ardley introduces many areas of science from electricity, to sound and music, to motion and machines. Each activity is given between half a page and two pages, and is illustrated with bright, full-color photographs that clearly show each step in the process. Two or three sentences summarize what takes place, but little of the science is explained. For instance, in ``Fly a hot-air balloon'' readers are told that hot air rises, but not why. The book does do a good job of presenting science as enjoyable and exciting. It could be useful if supplemented by titles such as Stephen P. Kramer's How to Think Like a Scientist (HarperCollins, 1987) and books on specific areas of interest, such as those found in the ``Eyewitness Science'' series.-Janet K. Hamilton, Museum of Science, Boston

    Awesome!

    My kids and I enjoy this book so much we cannot get enough of doing the experiments. This makes me so happy because I really want for kids to gravitate to science and math. It is very appropriate for young children too.

    This book is fabulous

    As a teacher, I am always looking for that perfect book to give me ideas for crafts as well as inform me of ways to teach my kids. This book did both. Ardley does a wonderful job making science both interesting and fun for all ages. His easy-to-follow instructions for all of his experiments were very inviting, and my kids loved it. Thank you to Neil Ardley for making my job that much easier.

    The Best Hands On Science Book Ever

    I am a huge fan of DK's clear simple text accompanied by inviting methodical visuals, but this book far exceeded my high expectations. The experiments fall into categories including Air and Gases, Water and Liquids, Growth, and Motion and Machines. Almost all of the experiments can be conducted with materials around the house, with only a few exceptions which may require a quick run to the hardware store. The experiments are unique, fun and clearly represent basic scientific principles. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a child who is a visual or tactile learner.
