Shawn Campbell's pictures make this book even more spectacularly awesome. Just to look at the colorful examples and illustrations will make anyone of any age want to try these experiments himself/herself.
Steve Spangler makes sure we will learn the actual science behind each of his experiments, too. This book isn't just about having fun, blowing things up, and making messes, although those things certainly add to the awesomeness. Yes, you and your kids will have fun, blow things up, and make messes, but you will also understand why. Mr. Spangler is a master teacher who knows how to communicate his love of science and kids, and his audiences and readers sense it and respond accordingly, with that same enthusiasm.
"Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes" is the kind of book that belongs on every classroom's library shelf and every kid's bedroom bookcase. However, I seriously doubt that the book will stay on the shelf for long; once word gets out, every kid in the building will want to get his/her hands on it and start experimenting. It might even be a good idea to get a second copy to keep in the kitchen; many of the experiments use simple household ingredients that are found in any pantry.
My liking for and enthusiasm about this book are intense. It's absolutely fantastic!
I wholeheartedly recommend this book for all parents who are looking for a way to engage their children in something other than digital appliances! I unreservedly recommend this book for teachers who want their students to ask them to "do that again!" in class! Above all, I recommend this book for anyone who just wants to have some fun!
The best part of this fantastic book is the experiments! We have NEVER had to run out to a hardware store or pull dusty boxes out of the garage to try and find odd items to use. Steve uses everyday household items to accomplish exciting results! For a busy homeschool mom, this is a tremendous help!
Thank you Steve Spangler for getting it right!
I highly recommend this resource, for homeschoolers especially. You can do almost everything on a shoe string budget and the preparation is not overly complex. This is an excellent book of experiments, and it might just get parents excited about science again, too!
