100 Science Experiments by Kate Knighton, Georgina Andrews

An action-packed collection of 100 simple science experiments combining fun with scientific investigation and covers the basics of physics, chemistry and biology.

Includes making crystals, electrical circuits, paper planes, kaleidoscopes, balloon rockets, shadow puppets and much more.


This fun and colourful book contains lots of simple science experiments. Most of the experiments can be done with everyday household objects and many children can do them on their own. Contains clear step-by-step instructions, illustrations and an explanation of what’s going on. Family Interest

I absolutely adore this book. There are lots of old favourites but plenty of new ideas too, such as how to make your own compass (I wouldn't rely on it for real orienteering) and weather vane. If your child is inquisitive, this will be a godsend over the summer - Annalisa Barbieri - Guardian.co.uk

Combines hands-on fun with scientific investigation and covers all areas of science, even simple genetics! It includes a glossary and internet links to recommended websites with lots more experiments and activities. Creative Steps magazine

One hell of a starting point for parents hoping to show their kids some really cool and simple examples of science in action. Silicon Republic

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love lovereading4kids because I’ve read amazing books I would never have picked up, and its opened doors to new genre’s I now love.

Harriet Cunningham

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.
