When Science Explodes

Any book that tells you how to make a Frankenstein hand, burning ice, a CD hovercraft and blubber is pretty much a good bet with kids. Throw in the fact that it's got cool pictures, easy instructions and great "Take Care" notes sure to satisfy anxious parents and it rises to the level of an awesome book for anyone. The book in question is The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science: 64 Daring Experiments for Young Scientists by Sean Connolly, a sure bet for some not-even-science-fair-time fun.

Each experiment features a mini intro, a handy list of supplies (most of which are household items), step-by-step instructions and yep, the "scientific excuse" behind the trick. A little bit magic, a little bit science, a lot of fun!
