I used to spend hours in the summer building tiny fires and killing ants with the Fresnel lens included in the book.

I had this as a kid and absolutely loved it. With the attached magnet, refractive lens, agar gel, and so on it gave me a chance to get hands on with some of the science talked about in the colourful book, and I would say that this book possibly founded my love of science. I wish there was something similar available for kids these days!

Shelves: children-s
Potential Problems: If you use items you need to re-order them.
Personal Response: I found it to be a VERY fun book, and I can’t wait to share it with my future children and do those fun activities with them.

This is the way science should be taught--FUN! It's a great interactive book that explains everyday "stuff" & complex science in an easy to understand and entertaining manner.

Good science book with manipulatives (a page that is a mirror, an attached magnet, etc.) so kids can act out the experiments mentioned.

Really fun overview of different science principles. Sort of like a kid-friendly science museum in a book.
