Timberdoodle's review
Engaging Young Scientists Has Never Been Easier
Teaching science to your three- and four-year-olds has never been easier. Using Janice VanCleave's Big Book of Play and Find Out Science Projects as a guide, you and your child will explore physical science, nature, bugs, and the human body in a way that will engage and excite.

Wide Range of Simple Experiments
Loads of simple experiments using ordinary household items will explain important concepts like why we wear seatbelts, why our bones are hard, how butterflies drink, and why catsí eyes glow. This age group learns basic scientific concepts best with hands-on experiments, and Big Book of Play and Find Out Science does not disappoint with its more than 50 easy-to-do activities.
See the table of contents here.

Great for Intro to Science June 22, 2014
Reviewer: Sarah W.  
My son loves science and I like this book because it gives me lots of great ideas to help him engage more with science. I will say that I have a hard time find the time to set up and work through the projects with him and sometimes find I don't have the materials required (we don't keep alot of the "standard" homeschooling craft materials in our house). But everything we have done he has enjoyed and it helped him understand science concepts better (he's 3).

Great First Science Book January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Kristi H  
This is a fun and educational science book for a preschooler. The best one I have ever used. It mainly uses items and ingredients you already have around the house with the occasional cheap, grocery store item to add. We are having fun and learning lots using this science book.

Hours of Fun June 1, 2012
Reviewer: Coffee Sipper  
I grew up on Janice Van Cleave books and enjoyed them a lot, so naturally I was happy to came across this book a few months ago because it is meant specifically for the young-child crowd. Anything I can do with my toddlers that is both fun and educational is a plus. We enjoy doing the projects. They are simple and teach scientific concepts at a level that a toddler can begin to grasp. The projects use household items and don't require expensive or hard-to-come-by items. This book is practical, fun and educational. My kids are young enough that I can go through the book several times and they will grasp the concepts just a little more each time we do the projects.

Love these books! March 8, 2012
Reviewer: Sandwichin Wi from WI United States  
I own two of the four books which are now part of this compilation: Human Body and Bugs.  The individual books are now out of print, but I am really excited to see them available in this book.

Each topic includes a short explanation of the topic geared to preschool or kindergarten and then a hands-on experiment using easy to find materials.  It asks the question of the child and expects them to discover the answer through the experiment in an age-appropriate way.  It then explains what happened.  There are also "finding out more" extensions for the really curious scientist.

I would say these are appropriate through 1st grade (at least the Human Body and Bugs sections--I haven't seen the other two volumes in this compilation), although my 3rd grade son just used the section on blood for a hands-on presentation for his class.

I would buy this volume just to get the two books I am missing, even though I already own "half" of the book!
