I like the book because I like science experiments and the ones I tried were really fun. Also, with one of the experiments I added extra ingredients to see what happened.

Good advice for kids like me and also good experiments I borrowed this book from the library and I did an experiment with my mum and I had to get oil and soap in a bowl of water the final result was pretty cool there are fun things for family’s to do the reason I gave this book a 4 star was because it isn’t a independent book you have to get your parents But they could be busy but the book is still good probably recommend to 9-13? It is a pretty good book.

I found this book fairly fun because you can do science experiments at home. My favourite one is creating a rainbow with kitchen roll.
