Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-7

A science-experiment bonanza. Divided into chapters with titles such as "The Human Wonder," "Fluid Feats," "Energy Entrapments," and "Mathematical Duplicity," this volume has more than 200 experiments with clear how-to instructions. All of the projects are doable and the science behind them is explained in a kid-accessible manner. Children can make nutty putty or a sandwich-bag bomb, use a magnet to extract the iron from breakfast cereal, or tie a knot in a chicken bone. Experiments that require adult supervision are noted. Black-and-white line drawings add humor and clarify instructions. This is a great resource for teachers, parents, and budding scientists-and for any youngster who can't resist a challenge.-Ragan O'Malley, Saint Ann's School, Brooklyn, NY
