Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder: Adventures in Science round the kitchen table will help families appreciate the wonders of science together. This is not a book just for children, it's a book for the grown-ups too who want to enthuse and inspire young people through science but may not themselves know the answers. Why does the ...? What is ...? How does ...? Why is ...? What are all the parts of a flower? I don't know!... But soon you will. Every child can be a scientist with the help of Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder. This is the perfect book to help create a scientifically inclined young mind as much as it is for an already scientifically inclined young mind. A message from the author: "When scientists are asked what inspired their career choices, they tend to fall into two groups: people who claim they always had a drive to understand the natural world (and have stories about how they did experiments in their parents' garages); and those who credit 'a good teacher'. I fall into the latter camp - I took no interest in science until I was about 14, when I finally had science teachers who made me see the joy and wonder in the subject. With my book Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder, I wanted to do more than provide the kind of step-by-step instructions you can find in countless other books: I wanted to equip parents with the skills they need to help their children engage more deeply with scientific ways of thinking. I appreciate that some people are turned off science by their experiences at school, while others may be put off by its apparent complexity or lack of relevance to their daily lives. With Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder, I'm hopeful that I can help such people to re-engage with science so they can help their own children get the most out of what the subject has to offer. I firmly believe that science can enrich our lives as much as literature, art, or music can, when we approach it in a way that is appropriate to our own needs and wants."
