    This is a large book It measures 12 high 10 14 wide and over 12 thick Anyone who has ever read a DK book will be familiar with there standard fare DK books feature large very high quality full colour photographs on a good thick glossy paper In general the photographs make the book but DK is never short on information either This book provides clear step by step details for 85 experiments as well as information on how each experiment works and the scientific principles involvedWhen this book arrived my sons both sat down quite happily to look through and help choose which experiments to try first This is not our first science book and we do like messy science so I'm afraid we had already tried a great many of the experiments but they immediately found one they were both desperate to try This experiment requires dry ice as did the next experiment they chose so I told them I would have to see if we could order any online I spent hours searching through the net and the best price I found was £50 postage This was out of my price range so I'm afraid we will never be trying the very best experiments We found other experiments we wanted to try Some worked some did not I also found a number of items that were not really household items were required such as a black light We bought one just for an experiment but ours was not as powerful as the one used for illustration and the results nowhere near so striking Other materials the average household may not have to hand include alum and glycerine but these are not hard to come by The majority of experiments to use common household items and the majority are easy enough to reproduce as long as you don't expect quite the same results as in the illustrations Overall we really enjoyed this book there are plenty of fun hands on ways to learn science but as a home educator I was already familiar with almost all of the experiments that we were able to do I think it only fair to mention that almost all of these experiments can easily be found online for free but then you don't have as much detailed information on the science behind it or the lovely photos Still it is a fun resource for the children to thumb through on a rainy day and choose activities and it does have a fair amount of educational value My children are ages 3 and 7 While the 3 year old had fun with some of the experiments this book is best suited to older children I would say age 5 at least with quite a lot of parental help As far as reading level I would put this at about age 8 but I would not want children under 12 doing many of these experiments without adult supervision
