Review: The Science Spell Book

We have a new favorite science experiment book in our homeschool!

I was lucky to preview an advanced copy of The Science Spell Book: 30 Enchanting Experiments for Kids earlier this year and immediately fell in love with it. It’s is one of my favorite children’s science books that I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot!

The Science Spell Book: 30 Enchanting Experiments for Kids (affiliate link) was written by biochemist Cara Florance, who teaches kids abut physics, biology, chemistry and more with amazing activities like:

  • Elixir of Enlightenment―brew a color-changing tea and learn about pH indicators
  • Chaotic Calling―learn about chaos theory while creating art with a pendulum
  • Fluorescent Feast―create a meal that glows under a black light
  • North Divination―make a homemade compass

Each experiment includes simple instructions, diagrams to follow along with, and an explanation of the science behind each magical experiment.

The book is packed with fun science activities with lots of full color, engaging photos, clear instructions, lots of information about the science behind the activity, and a wonderfully fun feel to it all.

There are all different sections for all kinds of types of science, and the projects are really creative.

I can’t think of any kid who wouldn’t like making a UV-glowing dinner, bracelets that light up when you click them together, or color changing ink from anthocyanins!

The Science Spell Book is great fun — and even better, it’s wildly educational to boot.

You can purchase The Science Spell Book: 30 Enchanting Experiments for Kids on Amazon (affiliate link) or at your local bookseller, or ask your library to carry it.
