Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dia Michels
This adorable book invites the young reader to explore and answer questions about light, matter and much more. Make a pinwheel and learn about the air. Make a sundial and learn about light. Eighteen appealing experiments are so much fun that students won't notice how much they are learning. Delightful full-color pictures and lively text accompany each experiment. Supplies and instructions are simple. Kids, parents, and teachers alike will enjoy the activities this science school-in-a-book has to offer.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-With large, colorful illustrations, an attractive layout, and step-by-step instructions, this engaging activity book invites readers to try out approximately 50 science experiments. After welcoming children to "Science School," a smiling teacher wearing a lab coat introduces matter, heat, air and water, forces, light, sound, and electricity. Each section begins with a paragraph of information and concludes with two to three relevant hands-on activities. "Science Tips" provide additional facts (such as how water evaporates, how shadows are formed, etc.). Most of the supplies can be found at home. Intended for home use or as a supplement to the science curriculum, the experiments are certain to pique children's interest and encourage them to reexamine common objects and occurrences. Although designed to introduce basic concepts, many of the activities may also be useful for formulating science-project ideas. Overall, a unique "school in a book" that markets science as a series of stimulating facts and activities.-Jennifer Oyama, Los Angeles Public Library, CA
