Didn't love this nearly as much as I wanted to. Nothing in here will take more than 10 minutes or so, with the exception of the experiments like "now leave it in the sun for 10 days!" Probably a great book to give to science-minded kids, but the prep time to get the book, find an experiment, and acquire the proper adult supervision probably isn't going to be worthwhile for a 5- or 10-minute experiment.

For any young children interested in science this is a must read. There are hundreds of quick and easy science tricks or experiments that can be done from home without any special materials, just common household items. While some of the tricks don't seem very interesting or even scientific, for the most part, there is quite a bit for young science lovers.

Teaches you how to create a sunset in a glass of water and how to create the illusion of levitating cardboard. Concise but fun explanations of the science behind these quick bets (experiments). Great for adults in a dull work-place, too.
