Synopsis

Edible Science Experiments You Can Eat by National Geographic Kids, PhD. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen, Carol Tennant, Rachel Fuller

Grab a beaker, pick up your whisk, and get ready to cook up some solid science. Using food as our tools (or ingredients!) curious kids become saucy scientists that measure, weigh, combine, and craft their way through the kitchen. Discover dozens of thoroughly-tested, fun, edible experiments, sprinkled with helpful photos, diagrams, scientific facts, sub-experiments, and more. And the best news is when all the mad-science is done, you're invited to grab a spoon and take a bite - and share your results with friends and family.

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