I love this book by Janice Van Cleave! I came across it while looking through a homeschooling catalog and decided to purchase a copy for our home school. The book is divided into eight sections: Before You Begin, Air, Changes, Magnets, Forces, Light, Sound and Electricity. In each section are a group of simple science experiments for parent and child to do together. Both parent and child will enjoy learning about scientific principles in a fun, hands on format. There are other books in this series which I would recommend, “Play and Find Out About Nature, Play and Find Out About Bugs, Play and Find Out About the Human Body, Play and Find Out About Math.”
After completing this series I would recommend moving on the the Janice Van Cleave books “Science for Every Kid” series.
