The Lovereading4Kids comment

Here are over fifty fantastically fun projects for children to enjoy doing with or without an adult that use easy-to-find everyday materials. Make things that fly, fling, spin, swim, whoosh, zoom and ooze, and discover the surprising science behind them. It’s a great way to introduce children to the world of science in a practical and interactive way and hopefully to inspire them to continue science for longer as they progress through school.

This title was the winner of the Royal Society Prize for Science Books: Junior Prize.

About the Author

Leonie Pratt has written all sorts of books about all sorts of things, but activity books are her speciality. She spends her days in the Usborne office experimenting with PVA, kitchen foil and anything else she can lay her paint-covered hands on. At night, she writes about whatever she feels like, a bowl of popcorn by her side, a cat on her knee and one by her feet.

Rebecca Gilpin has been happily writing Usborne books for nearly 10 years, including 15 Make and Do books. She lives at the seaside with her husband in a bright white house and writes her books in a glass room on the roof. Her favourite part of her work is transforming heaps of bits and bobs into fairies, pirates, or whatever else needs to be brought to life that day...
