I was delighted when I was given the opportunity to review The Wizard's Workshop. This new book is a science activity book for children and tweens, and adults like me that love science experiments and magic. I also teach 2nd grade, so I was excited to take this book to school and see what my students thought of it.

At first they screamed out it was Harry Potter. I told them it was just as cool and that we all could use magic together. The students loved how the book was presented to the reader b

I'm a homeschooling mom with kids age 10, 7, 4, and 2. We received a PDF for review, and after reading and performing a couple "spells," the older kids were begging to buy the hard copy. The experiments we've done so far have been fun, and the presentation is entertaining. I also like that though these are simple science experiments with mostly household products, they're done with a bit of a twist. So, for example, instead of the baking soda and vinegar volcano you get in every science project ...more

My kids love sci-fi/fantasy, so I thought that this would be a cute book to get. When the book came, they eagerly read through the activities and little stories that went with them. I liked how the ingredients had "exotic" names like 'ground dragon egg' for 'sugar' (there's a list of all the ingredients in the back of the book). The names of the "inventors" were fun, also--Darren Deeds, Iva P. Brain, Constance Noring... The little "handwritten" notes from the "previous owner" were good for giggl ...more

The Wizard's Workshop was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I am a mother of 4 younger children (aging between 4-10 years old). We enjoy science and have fun doing experiments in our house on a regular basis. When given the opportunity to review this book, I was thrilled, and oh how fun it was. All the experiments were presented as wizard potions, with fun made up names for all the ingredients (for example, red food coloring is "Dragon's Blood") There are funny backstories for all th ...more

Looking for a rainy day activity, or some fun ideas for the most magical birthday party ever? This is the book for you! Truly, the Wizard’s Workshop is the most delightful book for home science experiments that I have ever read.

The book is written in easy to understand language, and decorated with whimsical imaginative drawings are artwork. It really is a beautiful way to lose oneself in imagination and is an easy pick-me-up for a child feeling down. Plus, the book includes jokes in addition to

If you have a wizard in training at your house, then this is the science book for you. This book makes science fun and exciting. Everything about The Wizard’s Workshop is magical. The potion labels for what were once common household items make the experiments fun and exciting. Who knew I had dragon’s spit in my cupboard and it could extinguish a flame? Every page is filled with humorous asides and intriguing histories of the spells (experiments). Even the names of the famous inventors are fille ...more

Such a clever book! The experiments are cool, but honestly you could be entertained just by reading the punny histories behind each potion and the handwritten notes scrawled in the margins.

As a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, I was excited to have the chance to review this book, as it looks like something the students would have used at Hogwarts. As a child, I was never a huge fan of science, but I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more with this charming activity book. The Wizard's Workshop is a way to make science fun!
