Doing exactly what it says on the tin, this book is indeed packed with things for kids to do with science and the great news is that all 101 of them are fun and generally easy to do, and that they can be created from craft materials or items that all of us will have readily to hand. The instructions are straightforward and written in a conspiratorial style that positively encourages children to ‘create mayhem’ while on each page a paragraph called ‘The Sciencey Bit’ explains the scientific process behind each experiment. Diagrams and colour photos make it more accessible and attractive to look at too. With activities that can be carried out indoors and outdoors, this will be great for the Easter and summer holidays. ~ Andrea Reece
