I have two kids, 6 and 9. Both are interested in science, and we are using this book to give them opportunities to explore their interests in an entertaining way. It's well organized, well written, and engaging, and is appropriate for slightly younger kids than the guidelines, as long as these kids can read and have some interest in science. We're definitely enjoying it.

I borrowed this book from the library and it was filled with so many fun and educational projects I just had to buy it for my kids. It is a great way to get them interested in doing science experiments and they learn so much from it. I definitely recommend this book.

These books are worth the purchase. There ALOT ideas for simple experiments to do with children either at home or in child care setting or even with school age children.

If you have a science background or a teacher I don't think you're the intended audience for this book. It isn't a good resource for ideas for myself and I run a STEM enrichment program. I plan on passing this down to a kiddo who shows interest in completing their own experiments at home. Most of the experiments listed are commonly found on the internet.

This was a gift for my 10 & 5 year old. This book was easy enough for both to follow, and be absolutely enthralled with. The experiments are fun, easy, and well written.

These experiments are ideal for young learners. As a pre-k teacher, I hope to incorporate these experiments in the class this year.

It's pretty good. Unfortunately many experiments are not really experiments. For example "go find some leaves"...this is not what I think of a science experiment. Technical that is a science project. There are however many cool projects in the book, just not as many as you might think. Some of them are outdated or the instructions are not clear. For example. one is about making copper acetate with pennies, but pennies are no longer made of copper (it's a zinc alloy because copper is too expensive). And there are instructions on using lemon juice in the traditional spy fashion to do invisible writing, but unfortunately it's not clear how to make the writing visible. I suppose we learned something by actually figuring that out. :)
