Reviews

Simple and brilliant [...] Perfect for the summer holidays. -- Chris Evans * BBC Radio 2 Chris Evans Breakfast Show * Packed full of wonderful science experiments for children to try at home, devised by the great scientist himself. This summer your children can spend their days writing in invisible ink, creating fizzy bath bombs or designing sun prints. A must-have for any budding scientist. * Angels & Urchins * Inspire the scientists of the future with this collection of 28 hands-on projects for kids. * BBC Focus * Packed with 28 brilliant experiments for any budding scientists, using clear step-by-step instructions, everyday ingredients and amazing photography. * Primary Times * The step-by-step instructions and photographs are beautifully clear and really appealing; we couldn't wait to get started! * TheSchoolRun.co.uk * Home Lab is a good example of science not just being a theoretical study, but it's actually for kids to get their hands stuck in, ask questions and find out what's going on. There are wonderful experiments in this which I've done with the school children I work with and they've really enjoyed them. I think it's very important to show that science isn't just done in a laboratory, it isn't just studied at university - actually you can do it yourself with simple materials. The book has very easy to follow instructions, even for somebody like me, even I can do them. It's interactive and I think it's important to have that element in the shortlist. -- Martin Chilton, Judge of the Royal Society Young People's Science Book Prize
