So this week’s book review is a little different than the other reviews I’ve been doing. This week, I’m reviewing a science e-book that would be PERFECT for the homeschooling family or a parent that just wants to get involved with science fun. The projects in this book would probably be best for kids aged 3-7 or so, but of course if you have older or younger children, everything could be modified as needed.
Touch of Home Learning has really rolled out a great product with this book. It retails for $54.95 on their website.
The layout of this book is awesome! The table of contents breaks it down into categories such as Space, Dinosaurs, Kitchen Science, Magic or Science? and many more. Each experiment usually involves the kids making something and it includes your supply list, preparation instructions, discussion topics, the steps to do or make the project, and some include even more questions or ideas.
The projects and creations are so cool! I am particularly excited because we are part of a homeschooling co-op for roughly 4-8 year olds and this will be just PERFECT since we do science each week with the kids!
Something I love about this is that the materials are literally things you likely have sitting around your home right now. I know, I know, you’ve probably read that before in craft or science books only to find that you needed complicated stuff that you didn’t even know where to look for at a store, but this one is legit. 🙂
I will be doing some fun projects and experiments with my kids from this in the next few weeks and hopefully will have a chance to post about it and maybe post some pictures, too! I think our whole family will probably get involved in this… my hubby LOVES science!
The format of this book is extremely mom-friendly and it combines science activities across different ages in a really unique, easy, and cohesive way. I can see doing these activities with all 3 of my children at one time and each of them will learn something and have something to contribute as well. I can also see them begging to recreate favorites and beg to do more research on the experiments they like most.
