Combining classic children's literature with fun kitchen science experiments, this handbook is an ideal resource for parents or teachers who want to instill a cross-curricular approach to educating their children. A wide range of experiments are featured, including how to make the green goo found in Dr. Seuss' Bartholomew and the Oobleck, as well as making pasta dance as shown in Tomie dePaola's Strega Nona. Each chapter contains a detailed summary of the story, step-by-step instructions with a list of ingredients, thought-provoking questions for children, science facts, how to relate the experiment to everyday life, and sources for further exploration. The activities, which are appropriate for children ages 4 to 11, result in a terrific way to combine reading with turning a kitchen into an exciting laboratory of learning.
