Oh, Ick! by Joy Masqff is a fantastic science book for kids! It has such a large variety of science and written in a language that kids get. It has many, many experiments that you can actually do and have the stuff for around the house! They are gross, slimy, stinky experiments, but fun to do and kids will love them. I had fun just reading them. The book also has great pictures and funny illustrations. Some of the subjects include insects, mummies, spit, toilets, viruses, worms, zits, poop, ...more

Oh, Ick!: 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out! by Joy Masoff consists of a lot of experiments that even I could do! They do look gross, but that's why kids will love them. Thanks to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for providing this ARC. I will suggest it to teachers and students alike! Who can resist farting, stinky, slimy experiments that you can learn from?

This is a great book for kids that think that science is boring, because this book has experiments in how to make a farting slime bag, a fake fossil and foaming fungi. Easy to do, mostly on your own, or with the help of adult to get the ingredients, this will have kids get more involved in science.

Or, just have fun.

Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

As the title says, the book features 114 science experiments, as well as information on jobs and environmental exploration as well.
The book uses multiple experiments with each of the following subjects, including timeline, science behind it, and supplies (by the way, almost all of them take less than an hour to do):
-Zits, Electricity, Eggs, worms, vomit, viruses, urine, toilets, spit, slime, scabs, quakes and sinkholes, poop, mummies, gross food, odors, noises/sounds, lava, insects, ice cream,

Fun, gross facts...fun, gross experiments...what's not to like? Not as much information on the science behind the experiments, but the book is loaded with real-life, gross trivia. Plenty of illustrations, but all in black and white with shades of green highlights on the page. A Glossy, full-color spread would be more appealing.

This is a fun book with facts to read and experiments. Some of the experiments are funny, but all contain a little but of the ick factor that draws kids especially boys. We did the digestive system because experiment we already had all the supplies. It definitely was gross for me but my son laughed through the whole thing. I received a copy of the book for my review.

Oh, Ick is a great compendium of grossness and science. It's very interesting for the elementary and middle school crowd and would be a really good resource for science fair projects that kids are actually interested in. My second grader likes to pick a page and have it read to her or flip through it and look at the pictures.

"Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review."

Thanks to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for the opportunity to read and review Oh, Ick!: 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out! by Joy Masoff! This book is interesting, humorous and educational for all ages! Includes hands-on activities, tasty but disgusting snack recipes and cartoons detailing the what's, why's and how's of science in the world around us - 5 stars!

I always struggled with science, but I think if I had done more science experiments, putting the facts and information that I couldn’t memorize into practice, I would have been able to understand the concepts and information better. Books like Oh, Ick! and its companions Oh, Yuck! and Oh, Yikes! make science interesting thus helping kids put science into action and moving the information from short term to long term!

What a treat for any child who loves experimenting with yucky things.
This will appeal to all budding scientists.
I think my 2 nephews will love this book. Christmas presents sorted!
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Workman Publishing via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.

I gave this one to my son, and he went and did quite a few of the gross experiments himself. He is still in testing phase, but I can say that this book would be perfect for any kid who loves science. I think I need to buy the paper copy so he can bring it to show his teacher.

With 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out, you will find everything you need to learn about, create and bring out everyone’s inner squeamishness. Fun illustrations, easy to read instructions and freaky facts make this a must have book for all future scientists.
