Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Science-minded kids—or those who are just plain curious—will appreciate this intriguing kit. The publisher promises "more than 100 experiments," and we find half of those in Chris Maynard's well-written Explore Science (previously published as Kitchen Science). The other half can be found in a flip-book of Experiment Cards. The final print element of the set is Science Workbook, a slender workbook of plain white sheets accompanied by slip-out red and green plastic squares, and a bright colored paper. Rounding out the set is a tray of science tools: balloons, vials, hard straws, string, printed cardstock, and more. Budding scientists are encouraged to use a combination of materials found in the kit and those found around the house to make such things as a light kaleidoscope and a sticky light, to inflate a balloon in a bottle ad build a race car, to experiment with liquid density and currents of energy. It's a captivating set with clearly-written instructions accompanied by a host of full-color photographs. Children are sure to enjoy this independently, with an adult helper, or with peers. (Although marked 8+ due to balloon aspiration risk, this kit is suitable for children younger than 8, with adult supervision.) An excellent at-home complement to a school science curriculum, this is recommended as a gift that will be enthusiastically received. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
