By A Customer
My children have enjoyed this book every year when looking for their science experiments. It is so much fun and really triggers their interest in science. It's a must for all those families struggling for ideas for the science fair. Sincerely, E. Barthel St. Louis, MO

This book is well laid out and contains some fantastic experiments to use with children to help them to understand science in a fun and interesting way. The instructions are easy to follow and the explanations are precise and informative. A great source of reference for teaching KS1 children!

4.0 out of 5 stars Usborne book of experiments 13 Feb 2009
By Milina
I bought this book for my 5 year old, however, it is too advanced for this age group (I think it would create more questions than answers at this stage!)so I've decided to hold on to it for a future birthday present. The book looks good though although I haven't tried doing any of the experiments yet.
