There's a practical use for this book at school too, if you give it to a cool science teacher (come on, there must be some out there). The back pages are full of the pretty dangerous stuff that require open flames and foul-smelling chemicals. Let's just say that the guy in the photos sets fire to his hand without burning himself, and that's a science lesson you'd really want to be at. Flipside magazine, March 2012 their Read Of The Month! "I love Steve Spangler! This fantastic book of new home experiments makes science super cool and fun for children and their parents and will encourage them to take an interest in all things scientific.Having read his previous book, my 13 year old granddaughter and I jumped at the chance to try out this one and found it just as good as the last one. Over 200 stunning colour photos accompany easy to follow, step by step instructions which show you how to suspend water over someone's head, how to turn a juice bottle into a rocket launcher, how to make pop bottle music and many other fun filled activities. We particularly loved the balancing nails trick and the colour mixing wheel. This book should be in every school's library and we would definitely recommend it. Rating: 5/5." Reviewed by Rosemary Knight, whatsgoodtodo.com May 2012 "There are some great experiments you can do without investing in anything special. Hubbie did the Squeeze-Bottle Straw Bottles, everything is clearly outlined so easy to follow. Good safety guidelines, give you reassurance that your children will be safe following his experiments... if you planned on getting your children interested in science this is a must buy. You could soon see them walking on eggshells and making bouncing smoke bubbles, all the while learning the principles and laws of science through engagement and demonstration rather than being bored silly through hard facts alone. - reallymissingsleep.blogspot.co.uk May 2012
