Product description

Review

Several collections of kid-friendly experiments have been published recently, but Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder (Scribe) knocks most into a cocked hat. From a catapult constructed from a Pringles tube to the chemistry of a microwave cupcake, Alom Shaha first dangles an enticing activity, then meticulously ― and thrillingly ― details the scientific principles behind its operation. Emily Robertson’s glorious illustrations add to the book’s bursting, irresistible sense of excitement.

‘Alom Shaha is gentle and persuasive, the type of teacher you would have loved to have had educate you.’

Source: The Guardian

‘An ideal gift for children who love to experiment or learn how to understand how things work, this book will be very handy for keeping kids and adults busy on a rainy day.’

Source: Book Trust

‘[F]illed with beautifully illustrated experiments that adults can lead youngsters through.’

Author: Dean Burnett Source: The Guardian

‘Full of wonder and delight - this is the perfect recipe for families looking for fun ways to find out more about the universe. Bound to inspire any budding young scientists.’

Source: Christopher Edge, author of The Many Worlds of Albie Bright

‘Useful, inspiring and beautifully written.’

Author: Samuel West

‘Brilliant kitchen table science experiments.’

Author: Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant

‘Shaha's book provides a wide range of easy but intriguing science experiments and demonstrations to entertain and engage any child, rendered in charming images and using items found in any typical home. Plus it also provides a valid excuse to buy Pringles. What's not to like?’

Author: Dean Burnett, dad of two and author of The Idiot Brain

‘I love this book. The experiments are fantastic (and so are the pictures), but they’ll also make you think. You’ll want to ask questions, and to try to find out the answers. Which is pretty much all that real scientists do too.’

Author: Philip Ball, former editor of Nature

‘A charming, accessible way to introduce children to the wonders of scientific research. Every experiment is simple, yet there's no skimming over the hard facts. I wish I'd had a book like this when I was growing up. I'll certainly be working my way through it with my son.’

Author: Angela Saini, mother and author of Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong
