Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0789404664, Hardcover)

Just over 100 hands-on experiments in nine categories teach kids about the marvels of the natural world, from the murky depths of ponds to the sappy inner workings of trees to the wonders of the human body. Each step-by-step activity is easy to follow, requiring simple materials that can be found at home or easily acquired. Using balloons, water, and a fish tank, readers can make a model that resembles a group of animal cells living together. With nothing but their own two hands, young scientists can discover the connection between blood flow and gravity. And with a mushroom, a bowl, and some poster board, anyone can make a beautiful spore print. Crisp, vivid photos and drawings illustrate each stage of every activity, and cautionary notes and symbols are included for steps that require extra assistance from an adult.

David Burnie, distinguished author of many of Dorling Kindersley's award-winning resource books on nature, including How Nature Works, makes natural science more fun than any reluctant science student would ever have imagined. In spite of themselves, young readers of this big, handsome book will soon understand basic principles of nature and be inspired to explore far beyond the classroom. Ready for more?
