Kitchen Science by Shar Levine, Leslie Johnstone

The clean and colorful format, cleverly boxed lists of supplies, and cartoon characters will encourage youngsters to try these activities on their own. -- School Library Journal
Science basics start right at home for children with this fun introduction to the kitchen laboratory. There, simple and safe activities will reveal the excitement of science in an enjoyable, unintimidating atmosphere. And bright drawings and photos add to the kid appeal. What children learn as they cook up some cool experiments will set the stage for science success all through school. All it takes are some common materials, such as applesauce, coffee filters, coarse pepper, and a candy or two. Colorful cabbage soup teaches them about chemical reactions, and they'll also learn by watching balloons inflate themselves with the help of a little yeast, making eggs burp, and more. There are even activities to do in restaurants while waiting for the meal.
