Summary: Its pure bottled magic! A complete kit that ingeniously marries science and fun in the breakthrough vein of The Bug Book ...and Bug Bottle (1.7 million copies in print) and The Bones Book and Skeleton (1.65 million copies in print), Pop Bottle Science presents 79 easy, hands-on experiments that probe the worlds of chemistry, physics, biology, geology, weather, the human body, and even astronomy. The Pop Bottle bottle is a perfect miniature science lab--see-through, flexible, air-tight when necessary, made out of a durable, shatter-proof plastic and designed with a removable top that doubles as a funnel. The Pop Bottle book is a lively, fully illustrated 96-page guide to astonishment. Each experiment begins with a challenge and ends with an explanation of the scientific principles involved. Kids can design a volcano and watch it erupt. Create a tornado-maker and see how twisters work. Make quicksand--is it solid or liquid? Observe photosynthesis in action. Simulate Jupiters giant red spot, investigate buoyancy, demonstrate inertia, and discover the Bernoulli principle--which allows planes to fly. Plus, turn the bottle into a barometer, a thermometer, walkie-talkie, trombone, compass--or groovy lava lamp. About the Author: ?Lynn Brunelle, a four-time Emmy Award?winning writer for Bill Nye the Science Guy, is the author of Pop Bottle Science and Camp Out!.

Maybe the first How come? question is How come these books do so well? And the answer is in how they satiate every boy and girls i...nsatiable curiosity about the world around them.Crack science writer Kathy Wollard answers those sneakily simple questions that ambush even the most erudite moms and dads. Like: Why do apples turn brown when cut? Or Why do we get dizzy from spinning around on the playground? Or How can a fly walk up the kitchen wall? The 125 questions are all derived from the experiences central to a kids world?stuff that happens at home, in the backyard, at school, on vacation. There are the inevitable insect questions?Why do bees die after they sting someone? (the honeybees stinger is barbed, and cant detach from the bee without pulling out its venom sac, a fatal injury). Food questions?Is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? (a fruit, in fact a berry). Science questions?We used dry ice in our school play to make fog. How does it do that? (Unlike water, carbon dioxide goes straight from gas to solid and back?when frozen as dry ice, it melts into fog.) And the classic: Why cant we tickle ourselves? (Tickling depends on the element of surprise?and the brain cant surprise itself.)

Kids never stop asking questions. And Kathy Wollard, whose Los Angeles Times syndicated column How come? appears in newspapers aro...und the world, never stops answering them. In five years since the first How Come? was published, Ms. Wollard has written hundreds of columns addressing the whys, whats, wheres, and hows sent in by her readers.A direct follow-up to the original How Come?, How Come? Planet Earth is packed with lively, engagingly written, and often wittily illustrated answers to questions that kids have about the natural world around them. There are questions about animals - Why are electric eels electrical? (the charges not only help them find their way around in the dark, but act as a defense system). About human body - Where does the fat go when you lose weight? (its burned up inside the muscles for energy). About Earth science - Why are storm clouds gray? (they contain a lot of water, which absorbs more sunlight than an ordinary cloud does, so storm clouds appear ominously dark). And just about everyday stuff - How do they make chewing gum? Why are diamonds the hardest material on Earth? Why do dogs bark?For all kids who want to know (and all kids want to know), and for the parents who cant always explain it to them (no parents know every answer), How Come? Planet Earth is the perfect reference and companion.

What could be more fun for kids than to have the kind of rip-roaring good time that harkens back to pre-video game, pre-computer d...ays? Introducing 64 valuable science experiments that snap, crackle, pop, ooze, crash, boom, and stink! From Marshmallows on Steroids to Home-Made Lightning, the Sandwich Bag Bomb to Giant Air Cannon, The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science awakens kids curiosity while demonstrating scientific principles like osmosis, air pressure, and Newtons Third Law of Motion. Kids will love performing these experiments, which use common household ingredients and equipment, in front of an audience or for themselves (though many require adult supervision). Entries are categorized into seven chapters according to scientific theme and are written in a simple-to-follow recipe format. each includes a detailed explanation of the scientific principle involved and a Take Care! section with special tips. The books design and illustrations recall the pulp fiction look of science magazines from the days when space travel was still considered sci-fi, while the authors voice is wry and a bit conspiratorial. He assumes his readers are clever and never coddles them. Drop Mentos into a bottle of diet soda and stand back as a geyser erupts! Launch a rocket made from a film canister! Encase your little brother in a giant soap bubble! For young scientists?and the young at heart?this book is a blast. Literally.

Its never been more important to engage a childs scientific curiosity, and Sean Connolly knows just how to do itwith lively, hands...-on, seemingly dangerous experiments that pop, ooze, crash, and teach! Now, the author of The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science, takes it one step further: He leads kids through the history of science, and then creates amazing yet simple experiments that demonstrate key scientific principles. Tame fire just like a Neanderthal with the Fahrenheit 451 experiment. Round up all your friends and track the spread of disease using body glitter with an experiment inspired by Edward Jenner, the vaccination pioneer whos credited with saving more lives than any other person in history. Rediscover the wheel and axle with the ancient Sumerians, and perform an astounding experiment demonstrating the theory of angular momentum. Build a simple telescopejust like Galileosand find the four moons he discovered orbiting Jupiter (an act that helped land him in prison). Take a less potentially catastrophic approach to electricity than Ben Franklin did with the Lightning Mouth experiment. Re-create the Hadron Collider in a microwave with marshmallows, calculator, and a rulerit wont jeopardize Earth with a simulated Big Bang, but will demonstrate the speed of light. And its tasty! By letting kids stand on the shoulders of Aristotle, Newton, Einstein, the Wright brothers, Marie Curie, Darwin, Watson and Crick, and more, The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science is an uncommonly engaging guide to science, and the great stories of the men and women behind the science.
