About the Book
The science behind, "But, why?"

Don't get caught off guard by your kids' science questions! You and your family can learn all about the ins and outs of chemistry, biology, physics, the human body, and our planet with Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments. From Rock Candy Crystals to Magnetic Fields, each of these fun science projects features easy-to-understand instructions that can be carried out by even the youngest of lab partners, as well as awesome, full-color photographs that guide you through each step. Complete with 30 interactive experiments and explanations for how and why they work, this book will inspire your family to explore the science behind:

  • Chemistry, with Soap Clouds
  • Biology, with Hole-y Walls
  • Physics, with Straw Balloon Rocket Blasters
  • Planet Earth, with Acid Rain
  • The Human Body, with Marshmallow Pulse Keepers

Best of all, every single one of these projects can be tossed together with items around the house or with inexpensive supplies from the grocery store. Whether your kid wants to create his or her own Mount Vesuvius or discover why leaves change colors in the fall, Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments will bring out the mad scientists in your family--in no time!

My Take on the Book
This was an awesome book that gives you everything that you need to be seen as the coolest dad on the block (or at least in your own home). I loved how easy the experiments were and how, for the most part, most of these experiments were made with ingredients that I had in my home already so there was no special shopping that was needed. With great images throughout you can get a good grasp at what is supposed to happen in the experiment and my daughters and I loved trying many of these out and know that there will be plenty of time to come when we can plow through the other experiments too. This book gives you educational fodder to be able to have fun and learn together in a special way!

It's always exciting to see new clever books come out, especially when created for learning-fun for kids. And how EXTRA exciting when written by a new friend who cares so deeply about kids. Congrats. Thanks for this great review, Christopher.
