Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ru Story-Huffman
Subtitled: 50 Jaw-Dropping, Mind-Boggling, Head-Scratching, Activities for Kids, this book offers enjoyable learning. Comparing magic to science, Wiese features 50 science projects and experiments that can be performed as easy magic tricks. Based on general science subject areas, he also offers tips on being a good magician, how to do the projects listed, and science fair information. A warning is posted that some of the activities in the book will need adult supervision, especially those using household chemicals, heat or other materials. A nice bonus is the explanation section, which offers ideas and elucidates the results of the experiments. A good book for science teachers, librarians, and parents. Plus, a fun book for all those budding scientists and magicians.
