Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments has those amazing (but messy) projects...that he will love to do with the kids." --Parents Magazine

"Explosive(ly) ... Awesome." --The Denver Post

"Mike Adamick's book...explains how to do the projects and then has a section called 'Why it Works' to explain the science behind the thing you just blew up. It's especially good for the early elementary school set, but it could inspire variations for those old kiddos." --Austin-American Statesman

"A truly great book with 30 experiments that will be fun for the whole family, and that will help you teach your kids science concepts. We are enjoying Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments and definitely recommend it." --Stuff Parents Need

"If you're a fan of science experiments and want to do some with your kids, there are a lot of experiments in this book. Most of them are easy to do with really good instructions and pictures.... This is a very giftable book." --Time to Play Magazine
