I gave the Spangler books 5 stars, because individually they deserve it. However, just buy his latest book, because the experiments are mostly repeats of his last book with a couple of new ones thrown in. I bought all three at the same time and I was very disappointed, because they were practically reprints of one another.

I received this book as a gift to involve my children more in science. I was excited about conducting some fun 'wow' experiments and to the books credit there are some interesting experiments that can be conducted. I'm giving the book a single star because the title is misleading. To conclude summer vacation I decided I'd conduct the "fire bubble" or "exploding toothpaste" experiment which my kids had been asking to see. When I turned to that portion of the book I was disappointed to read these experiments are for 'teachers-only', certified, hands-on professionals, with access to materials an average person would not have on hand or easy access to. I would not be able to perform these experiments.

Why would the title of a book being sold to the general public suggest that there are experiments to be performed involving 'fire bubbles' and 'exploding toothpaste' when the reality is that they are only to be performed in a science lab by a certified professional?

If you are buying the book thinking you will be able to perform those two experiments for someone, think again, unless you're an active science teacher.

My son, age 10, and I are both big Steve Spangler fans. Last year I had purchased him the Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes book. There were many experiments in that book that we were both able to do and he has really enjoyed that book immensely.

This book we both also enjoy but the experiments are much more complicated and of a more professional level. I haven't read through this book as much as my son has yet but he kept commenting to me that in order to do this experiment or that experiment we would have to go on stevespangler.com to get an ingredient. I can tell he likes the book but the idea that we will have to purchase special ingredients is a bit of a turn off to us both.

So if you haven't purchased Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes I highly recommend you go with that book first to start with. If you are a die hard science experiment lover then by all means go for this book. It won't disappoint!

Format: Paperback
The very best thing about this book (and it's companion first volume, I might add) besides the copious amounts of AMAZING pictures, is the real-world application section that is included in many of the demonstrations! It ties in beautifully with the "Beyond the Fizz" ending about making sure there's more than gee whiz in your science demonstration.

I couldn't ask for a more engaging format. My students will be lining up to borrow this book as soon as it hits my classroom tomorrow. They won't be able to resist the beautiful pictures and the simple directions that will allow them to recreate some of these exciting moments at home. The best part is when I hear, "I'm going to show this to my little brother/sister!" I know when they say that, what they really mean is they intend to show off what they've learned by teaching it to someone else. These moments reach the dinner table.Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste: More Unforgettable Experiments that Make Science Fun

If I thought Steve Spangler hit a home run with "Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes," then I must say this work is a Grand Slam! It is a marvelous companion volume to his other book, but it is also a wonderful edition on its own. The text is easy to understand, and children can follow the directions with minimal supervision. It gives them a great sense of accomplishment to be able to say they did it themselves. The pictures are vivid and entertaining, and the actual experiments are lots of fun in addition to being invaluable teaching moments. I have this paperbound tome, and I am eagerly anticipating the iTunes version as well. I would highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, those interested in easy science demonstrations, and the fine folks who are still children at heart - it's fun for everyone!

If this is your first science demonstration book, at least it has good pics. But if you have been teaching for a while, you won't find anything special here. Find it in the library, or read it in the book store and save your money.

I am a teacher of pre-schoolers, and there were a few experiments that I can do with the kids, but our elementary teachers were actually going to put all the materials from a particular experiment in a box and put it on the shelf for the kids to do themselves. I am a Montessori teacher and it is definetly a good book for the child 8 and up with supervision.

With its good instructions using mostly everyday, easy-to-find items and its constant encouragement to use safety, Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste is an interesting book of experiments aimed at students of all ages.

My kids can't wait to try out "Skateboard Rocket Car" and the adults only section is definitely something that I think Science teachers would want to check out. It's highly informative and obvious that Steve Spangler not only has a love for Science, but he truly wants to share it with today's youth. This would be a great gift for a science teacher (especially upper Elementary and Junior High) or a homeschooling mom who wants to take Science to the next level.
