The layout of this book will really appeal to kids, because each experiment is presented as a `magic trick'. Each activity includes a `What You Need' list, `What To Do' (in easy-to-read steps), and an explanation of `What's Happening and Why'. Another nice thing is that each experiment is left open-ended and an `Other Things to Try' section at the end of each activity encourages young minds to explore the subject further. This section also gives special notes, such as "DO NOT PUT THE SLIME IN YOUR POCKET". This guy really knows kids!
