Format: Hardcover
I'm a sucker for any book that gives kids hands-on learning. There's much to like about this book: it's 4-color; full of photographs, drawings, and factoids; and contains interesting science experiments that most kids can complete with minimal adult supervision. Each experiment is nicely detailed, with simple steps, so the outcome should be successful (always a boon!). There's a section on Life Science ("Which Part of Your Arm is Most Sensitive?"), another on Earth Science ("Are Clouds Salty?"), another on Physical Science ("How Can I Make a Soda Bottle Spin?") and a fourth on Technology and Engineering ("Which Shoe is Best for a Big Hike?"). Each experiment concludes with a "The Science Behind It" box. Another nice touch: a section on "Success Secrets" for science fairs, including display tips and thinking like the judges. Whether used in the classroom or at home, this book is sure to be a hit with your kids.

The book looks like it has lots of explanations and easy child friendly experiments. The only negative is that I think it is written for an older age group - our child is 9 and I think it is aimed at 12 year olds and up.

With two science fair projects due each winter, our elementary school kids are always stuck with where to find new and exciting ideas for their investigations. This full color book by TIME FOR KIDS offers not only a huge selection of various age-appropriate experiments, but also provides valuable step by step real life photos, instructions, ideas for further thinking, guidelines to prepare the story boards, and unique questions and points of interest related to each topic. Special attention is given to safety while carrying out the experiments as well. There is something for everyone in this idea book, from the kid who loves earth science to the little inventor in the family. Though the choices are extensive, we managed to successfully narrow down at least 4 topics that were of interest to our kids this year and they are now choosing which ones will make for the most fun and informational presentation on their grade levels. A terrific book, highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a real science book and should not be regarded as merely a book of science experiments as the title implies. Each general area of science tends to be covered in considerable detail, much more so than would be required simply to explain the experiments described. For example the illustration of the architecture of plant cells and the human digestive system are reminiscent of a children's encyclopedia. Although this book can be enjoyed by 8-year-olds, I would agree with reviewer Joyce that, in many cases, it is more suitable for 10-12 year olds (and even adults).
The book is beautifully illustrated and well written. In many cases, one gets the sense that the book is intended to give students inspiration for school science projects--not a bad idea in itself.
Some of the experiments are very easily done. The use of a glass of water to show the ability of a lens to reverse the direction of an image (page 136) is as simple as they come and yet it was a big hit with the elementary children with whom I tried it. The construction of an electromagnet from a steel bolt wrapped with copper wire attached to a battery (page 154) is a neat experiment; but I found that a longer bolt and more extensive copper wire wrappings were necessary to yield any significant magnetic strength when connected to a D battery.
The book "365 Simple Science Experiments with Everyday Materials" has many more experiments and simpler explanations. I recommend it as a very useful companion volume in selecting science experiments to do with young children.

Time Big Book is a great way to establish concepts of science set forth in the text. Mostly common, household goods are used. We are homeschoolers and my 11-year-old has really taken off with the book. Nice use of modern, colored photos. Very attractive to a young learner. Highly recommend for fun and/or learning.

We got this book for our two grandsons, who at 8 years old are enamored with science. They love it!! It made good points for Grandma and Grandpa.

I purchased this book not really knowing if I'd like it. As it turns out, it is awesome! The topics are appropriate for elementary age level and of interest for them as well. The colorful pages and detailed explanations are student friendly. It has been a great investment for the classroom setting. Simply awesome!
