Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Younger teenagers will enjoy the activities in this entertaining book of simple science projects, most of which can be completed with materials that are already lying around the house. It is a perfect book to bring out on a rainy day or even outside on a sunny one. Each project is presented in the simplest terms so that young readers can often perform them without assistance. The projects are purposely messy, and each includes an interesting explanation of why it works. Intriguing one-page articles on science are scattered throughout the book to teach readers how these activities relate to real life, with subjects such as the science of mummies or how people used to make soap with animal fat and ash. LaBaff's colorful and humorous illustrations add to the book's youth appeal, as do eye-catching project titles such as "Bendable Bones" and "Soda Slobber." Upper elementary students and young teens with an interest in science and making messes will have a great time trying out the easy projects in the book. Although the title is recommended for public libraries and school libraries through sixth grade, the activities are simply not involved enough for an older teen's science assignments. VOYA CODES: 4Q 3P M (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8). 2005, Sterling, 80p.; Glossary. Index. Illus., Ages 11 to 14.
—Stephanie L. Petruso
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This lively book offers an engaging introduction to science experiments. The projects, many of them classics, are simple and require household materials, although one item, a 35mm film canister, may be difficult to acquire. The zany cartoon illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to the text, which is fun and informative. Readers are reminded that some activities require adult help, and they are encouraged to copy and tack up nearby the two pages of lab rules that are included. Each project begins with "What You Need," followed by "What You Do" and "Why It Works." Explanations are clear and concise. The glossary is comprehensive, and the words are italicized in the text. A metric conversion chart is included. While the projects would not be appropriate for a science fair, they tell how to make slime, volcanoes, stalactites, water bombs, and shrunken heads (using apples and Epsom salts) and are sure to interest kids.-Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Great At-Home Science Experiments

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my cousin's kid. It is full of non-toxic projects involving easily accessible ingredients. Many of them will involve messes (like the experiment that produces slime), and parental involvement will be necessary for some of them, depending on the age of the child. I know from experience that children are enthusiastic about hands-on-science, so this was an easy choice.
