With Over 50 Fantastic Experiments

by Chris Maynard

Reviewed November 3, 2001.
DK Publishing.  2001.  48 pages.  Available at Sembach Library (J 507.8 MAY).

I confess, I’m not one who often does cool activities with my kids, but the picture on the cover of this book motivated me.  The fact is, you haven’t lived until you’ve played with cornstarch slime with kids!  This book gives the recipe (two cups cornstarch to one cup water) for that and lots of other fun-looking, educational activities.  As with all DK products, the pictures are outstanding.
