I love this book! The way it's structured--like a field journal--let's kids be almost a co-author, plus the descriptions get pretty silly in places which makes my 3-year-old giggle.
Not all of these activities are alright for my little dude, for instance, boiling a paper cup of water directly on a burner is an experiment for him to observe and big sister (6) to pilot. Some of these may be fairly "tame" as one reviewer put it, but for example, having my son put his hand out of the car window at 45 mph made him giggle and my daughter kept experimenting with wind resistance. Then there's always the field journal element that helps reinforce the scientific aspects, as well as work on writing skills.
I will be buying this one for a few family friends for the holidays!
