“…this book is a wonderful resource for teachers and families who want children to understand and enjoy science.”
Greg M. Romaneck, Children’s Literature
"Throughout the book, jokes and sayings that fit into the experiment content make each activity fun to read. The pictures are both funny and descriptive, and each experiment is followed by a vocabulary and concepts section…. this is a fun and useful book recommended for ages 12 and above but adaptable for ages 8 through 11."
