Children's Literature - Beverly KobrinThe cleverly integrated photography and illustrations will attract young children. The more-than-a-dozen safe experiments employ materials easily found around home and school.
School Library Journal - School Library JournalDr. Zed, known for his captivating demonstrations on the science and nature magazine show broadcast on public television, now appears in print. Here, the cartoon character presents 30 science activities divided into 13 categories, each of which is attractively illustrated with fine quality, full-page color photographs. The design of the book is appealing and inviting. The safe and simple experiments require some common materials such as a glass of water for making a coin disappear, a blindfold for taste tests, and a magnifying glass for fingerprint investigation. Additional information concerning the activities is contained in a ``More from Dr. Zed'' section. An excellent addition to children's collections, large and small. --Carolyn S.
