Editorial Reviews

"Fun, accessible, and teeming with potential for extended inquiry." --Booklist

"although the book does include information for teachers and parents on science standards and the concepts behind the experiments, kids don’t need to see this as homework; the experiments are fun with or without a science lesson." -- School library Journal
