The Surfing Scientist - 40 Cool Science Tricks Ruben Meerman (ABC Books)
I recently came across this book that came out last year ... and it makes science fun!
There are 40 experiments - complete with photos and directions and then accompanying facts behind the experiment ... like the leak proof bag that is filled with water yet able to be pierced with pencils and NOT leak! Do the experiment; find out why it happens and also a few facts about plastic bags. Other experiments include: spearing a raw potato with a straw, and sticking two books together without glue. Great for home science exploration!!!!
