Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The perfect book for busy parents with a desire to help their children enjoy science projects at home."  —Barbara Youngblood, Children’s Literature

Children's Literature - Barbara Youngblood
The perfect book for busy parents with a desire to help their children enjoy science projects at home. All projects are designed to use common household items and are simple and easy to put together in a short time. Activities for the kitchen, for high energy times and bedtime and quiet times allow a wide range of possibilities. I was impressed with all the great science concepts that children will learn from these experiments.
