From School Library Journal Grade 3-6-Van Cleave writes books designed to show students that science is fun, and this latest collection does just that. The book recyles activities selected from her "Science for Every Kid" and "Spectacular Science Projects" series and adds 40 new ones. They are organized by field: astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics; the purpose, materials needed, procedure, results, and an explanation are included for each demonstration. The author writes in a clear, easy-to-understand style. Terms that are defined in the glossary appear in bold type. Cautions are noted in italics. A black-and-white diagram of the setup accompanies each project. The step-by-step procedural approach and the inclusion of a statement of what the results should be make these demonstrations rather than experiments. Nonetheless, they are interesting and most of them can be done by youngsters at home. The book will be especially useful to teachers looking for ideas that can be adapted as hands-on activities.
