Alom Shaha is gentle and persuasive, the type of teacher you would have loved to have had educate you.
The Guardian

[T]he perfect diversion for curious minds.
Irish Times

Shaha's book provides a wide range of easy but intriguing science experiments and demonstrations to entertain and engage any child, rendered in charming images and using items found in any typical home. Plus it also provides a valid excuse to buy Pringles. What's not to like?

There are just so many things to love about this book. I was instantly attracted by the gorgeous illustrations by Emily Robertson - they are beautiful and will easily captivate kids to get stuck into the experiments. The illustrations are also great in actually showing the step by step method of each experiment.

My daughter and I enjoyed this book so much we gave a copy to my nieces last Christmas.

The book provides the teacher and parent/carer for that matter, with an assortment of science activities that can be carried out with children, be that in small groups, individually, or as a whole class.
