Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
San Francisco's world-renowned Exploratorium, a museum of science, art and human perception, was founded more than twenty-five years ago. It is a center of learning, creativity, fun and excitement for thousands of visitors every year. This volume comes from this group of people, with a science at home focus. Media specialists and science teachers will want to add this to their "science projects" collections. Home schooling educators will also want to have this book on hand. Science experiments are presented that can be done outside, in the home, or in the classroom. Each experiment description gives the time needed to complete the experiment, as well as supplies needed and whether or not it can be done without adult supervision. The authors have also included field trip suggestions such as the one that encourages children to find examples of things that float all around their home and neighborhood. Recommended reading and teacher help pages are well done.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-8Family science-experiment ideas presented by San Francisco's Exploratorium, a museum that supports the principle of "hands-on, minds-on." The staff covers a wide variety of topics from mirrors to structures to taking things apart. Activities labeled "Kids Can Do It!" can be done by readers on their own. Those called "Exploring Together" would be best done in conjunction with adults. A handy illustration of a clock gives children an idea of how long the experiment should take. Proper precautions are given for safety. Photographs and cartoonlike illustrations enhance the clearly explained directions. Youngsters will appreciate the abundance of ideas suggested here from dissecting a floppy disk or cassette tape to the more common growing of different kinds of crystals or molds. The list for further reading is divided by books for children, books for adults without a science background, and books for adults with a science background. An excellent addition to science shelves.Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
