Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–9—Attractive, colorful, and full of photos, these hi/lo titles will appeal to a wide range of kids. While they are written on a third to fourth grade reading level, the photos show a cast of multicultural middle graders, so children in the older end of the grade range won't be shy about picking them up. Each project can be completed with simple household items, and most include six or fewer easy steps. The brief "Why it works" box at the end of each activity explains the science. Anyone looking for a straightforward, fun, and easy science experiment will want these titles close by.
Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Part of the "Fun Projects for Curious Kids" series, Wheeler-Topper introduces a new group of readers to exploding sodas and double bubbles. The projects are simple, yet interesting and fun. What's more, Wheeler-Topper understands how to do the most difficult part well—the explanations of the science, which are brief, but not overly-simplified. For example in the exploding soda experiment, called a Soda Shooter, readers are asked to put rock salt into a bottle of soda, then close it up quickly with modeling clay and a straw. The soda shoots out the straw. "Soda is fizzy because it is filled with tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide gas. These tiny bubbles gather along the rough edges of the salt and join to make bigger bubbles. The big bubbles are too large to stay put, so they come rushing out of the soda." The book shows photos of real kids building each of these nine projects, and has very clear step-by-step instructions. This book, and the series as a whole, will be enjoyed by a class, or by an individual reader. Backmatter includes a glossary, a list of related books, a connection to Capstone's safe search engine (FactHound), and an index. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen
