My kids especially BC love National Geographic Kids so I was excited to review this book. It has 7 sections Plants, Bugs and Microbes, People and Other Animals, Things Water Does, Reactions, Weird Physics, and Machines. This book is a great book to help kids learn to look outside of the box and try new things, as well as stimulate an interest in science. There are 50 experiments in the book on topics including electrical charges, chemical explosions and food chemistry. It even includes the rainbow rose that I have seen at stores. The book lets kids (and parents) know exactly what they need and how long it takes for an experiment to be completed, and contains a good number of photos. Experiments are based on materials that you will find in most homes. It also goes into scientific definitions, as well as explanations of any chemical change that might be happening and why. This is a very cool book with kid safe experiments. Most importantly, it’s educational and fun, which is why it would be a great gift for any child.
One winner will receive their own copy of Try This! 50 Fun Experiments For The Mad Scientist in You.
