Editorial Reviews

Booklist
(Solids, Liquids and Gases; Plants; Simple Machines; and Living Things all) offer simple science activities in an appealing format.
ForeWord
Until now, there haven’t been many good books of experiments for young children that deal with basic scientific principles and include projects that are not only fun, but easy to understand and replicate. Kids Can Press has answered the call with (Solids, Liquids and Gases; Plants; Simple Machines; and Living Things all) ? For a classroom, a child’s party or simply a curious budding scientist, Starting with Science is a series that will provide just the needed direction for hours of enjoyable learning.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One volume in the "Starting with Science" series, this book contains 13 simple science experiments that can be conducted at home or school. Its simple format, which tells you what you need, what to do, and provides some follow up questions, is quite appealing. The experiments deal with simple elements in everyday life, with a new twist designed to spark the scientist in your child. The photographs of children doing the actual experiments make it foolproof.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4--Using primary background colors and attractive, enthusiastic children as models, the format of this series is spacious and packs visual punch. Each book contains 13 experiments that are clearly explained in the full-color photographs and step-by-step directions. The texts are set in blocks that list the materials needed, the methodology, and an explanation of the principle shown. In Simple Machines, the lever, wheel, wheel and axle, gears, pulleys, inclined plane, screw, and combinations of basic machines are explored. One activity involves moving a friend lying on a table by using a broomstick placed over a wooden chair as a lever and fulcrum, which could be problematic. In Solids, Liquids and Gases, the properties of matter are explained using common experiments such as making ice cream. In general, safety precautions are indicated in the text or illustrated in the photographs. Expansions of each activity are included in an appendix. These lively titles are far more attractive than Anne Horvatic's Simple Machines (Dutton, 1989; o.p.) and more interactive than Michael Dahl's "Early Reader Science: Simple Machines" (Bridgestone, 1996).--Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH
