The Sticky, Stinky Science Book Review

Fascinating Facts Featured Books for 7+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers Science

In the name of science, this book allows children to create gloopy, magic slime; turn milk sour; and investigate their own farts. Well, you can’t say you weren’t warned: seldom has a title so accurately reflected the contents of a book. Sticky and stinky as the 32 experiments are however, they teach proper science, and each one is accompanied by a page of clear explanation of the different processes involved. There’s a page recommending further reading and a useful glossary, and the unorthodox approach could well inspire lots more science learning. Grown-ups can be reassured that amongst other things, the ‘rules of the lab’ emphasise the importance of cleaning up afterwards.

The Sticky, Stinky Science Book Synopsis

With this book you'll discover that science isn't dry and boring - it's oozing with curiosity, dripping with fun and exploding with imagination!

Filled with cool, crazy and downright gross science experiments to try at home, kids can find out first-hand how to make two kinds of gloopy slime, take the shell off a raw egg without breaking it, what happens when you microwave soap, and much more. Experiments are alternated with single-page factual entries about crazy and gross science in the real world. Astonishing photos and delightfully gross illustrations accompany the humorous text throughout.
