Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you are stumped for an idea for a science project, Vicki Cobb's book will be most welcome. The text lays out the materials and equipment, methodology and asks questions and makes suggestions regarding the outcomes. The experiments are rated as to difficulty and grouped into unusual categories such as—Inspirations from the Supermarket, Inspirations from the Hardware Store. Materials are easily obtained, the text is well written and kids with inquisitive minds and those who learn by doing should have lots of fun. The science will be easily absorbed and understood. I enjoyed the experiment to see DNA for oneself using procedures like those used by Friedrich Miescher in 1868—a scientist who was way ahead of his time, and also the project to create paint. The latter is open-ended because the combinations are endless and kids are encouraged to come up with their own combinations of materials. There are indexes by subject, discipline and difficulty. 2001, Scholastic, $16.95. Ages 9 up. Reviewer:Charles Wyman
School Library Journal
Gr 3-8-At first glance, one might be turned off by the text-heavy format, the two-color print (blue and teal), and the sheer density of this presentation. But those who take the time for a closer examination will discover a wealth of fun and exploration within. The short, easy-to-do experiments and activities are arranged by topic, and separate chapters are devoted to inspirations from the toy store, the supermarket, the drugstore, the hardware store, and the stationery store. Life sciences, chemistry and earth science, physical science, and technology are all addressed. Materials for each experiment are listed in order of use and "Observations & Suggestions" spell out experiment results as well as other related activities. Safety precautions are provided throughout the text. An unobtrusive scale next to each experiment records the challenge level as either low, middle, or high. There are subject, discipline, and challenge indexes. This title is useful for science buffs, science-fair projects, and for teachers looking for ways to put more zest into their lessons.-Eunice Weech, M. L.

    Excellent Science Project book!

    This is one of the finest, easiest to understand and actually 'duplicate in the Lab' books I have found. Interesting experiements, with intelligent explanations that I the 'adult' am finding worthwhile. Unlike many Science Experiment books that ask the student to use components that are hard to find, most experiments in this book are within easy access.
