Thumbs-up from a scientifically-challenged mom May 4, 2005
This book is organized extremely well and is easy to understand, for both kids and adults. It gives a number of examples on good experiments and encourages the child to pick something he/she will enjoy. After that, it takes you through the steps and includes EVERYTHING you need to get the project ready for the science fair. I can't recommend this book enough!
