My 7-year old son borrowed this book from the library, kept it an extra week, THEN asked if we could buy the book. Very educational with simple experiments on every page to reinforce the concept being discussed. I often 'skip' the experiments in books because they are too complex or require things I don't have--but we did almost all the experiments in this book. I am now a huge fan of this series and enjoy them as much as my child does.
