Overall I love this book as a source of practical experiments to do with my DS6. I am unsure of the target age for this book, although on the back page it says 'whether you're 8 or 80'. I feel the content, both visual and technical, is geared to much older children even adults but the results from the experiments are definitely fun for all!
Ingredients for most of the experiments really are household items (we were able to complete 3 experiments just from the kitchen cupboard/toy shelf straight away) with no complicated extras needed. One more thing I personally would have liked in the book was big warning triangles on some of the slightly more dangerous experiments eg. crisp packets in microwave or putting a bag over a toaster, with advice on what to do if things go wrong, .
But this may just be the mother in me over-riding the maverick scientist!! But apart from this an excellent book.Read moreLess
