- Is it possible to blow up a balloon without actually blowing into it?
- What is inside coins?
- Can a magnet ever be "turned off"?

School Teacher Approved
There are so many great experiments in this book!! Pay attention to the age range of 7-12 years. Some experiments, even for a 7 year old, need parental assistance. We bought this for our nephew. His mom is a school teacher and picky about educational items, but she said this book is a HIT. She and he love it and have been doing experiments together. If you have a little scientist, this book has a lot of great things to try out.

Don't think about it — BUY IT!
By PJ Cain
I purchased this book with two others for my 5 year old granddaughter who enjoys doing experiments. Well, this book IS AMAZING! The heck about it being for kids. This book can be thoroughly enjoyed by adults assisting the kids too. The book is broken down into the various fields of science with the experiments offering a good base of knowledge. It also has games, puzzles and jokes for a little diversion. It reinforces the scientific method throughout the book without becoming off-putting to kids. This book will not disappoint and will certainly make any child currently disinterested in science see how amazing it really is.

Hours of fun
By Gayle Newman
I love the everything books. I had them for my kids when they were growing up and now I uses them with my grands. I could never come up with these ideas on my own and it gives us hours and hours of fun while we learn. It has easy to follow instructions as well.
