Learn science through play with interactive chemistry experiments for kids ages 3 to 5

Little kids love to ask questions about the world around them, and the best way for them to find answers is with their own two hands! This exciting book about science for kids features 20 quick and easy chemistry projects that your little learner will want to try again and again.
  • Science for kids—Kids can create slippery slime, draw a picture with invisible ink, and make a rain cloud in a cup, all with easy-to-find household materials.
  • Simple steps—These experiments are easy enough for young children to do with just a little help, and most only take about 20 minutes.
  • Explore chemistry—Each experiment illustrates a chemical reaction—from bubbling seashells to an exploding volcano—and enhances learning with questions and explanations about each project.

Encourage kids to explore why things work with a fun and simple book of science for kids.

“There is so much to love about Dr. Hall's new book! It begins with a relationship between a tiny scientist, a grown-up, and curiosity as they dive into a great variety of chemistry experiments. The book supports grown-ups by including a messy meter with detailed, step-by-step instructions to help determine how science-y they are feeling and how much time there is until bedtime. The book reads like a dream for tiny scientists with beautiful, simple illustrations, numbered directions, and diverse scientists throughout. Most importantly, the book is so much fun! You will find all the ingredients inside to create playful memories for readers. I will be so happy to share this book and the joy of chemistry with the families I work with and with my own grandchildren.” —Katy Smith, M. Ed., 2011 Minnesota Teacher of the Year

“The step-by-step pictorial instructions found in Big Chemistry Experiments for Little Kids provides the perfect catalyst to discovery for budding little scientists. As an early childhood educator, I found the Be Curious section a great way to initiate thinking and the How it Works section a great resource for parents and teachers who might not know the why behind the results of these fun chemistry experiments.” —Debra McDonald, educational specialist, early childhood educator, 2014 Ohio Teacher of the Year

Big Chemistry Experiments for Little Kids gathers easy-to-do science experiments with clear directions and builds upon previous experiments to foster learning. It encourages children to work to answer their own questions, and to keep asking those questions.” —Karen L. Mackenzie, MD

“This book offers young learners a fun and educational introduction to the wonders of chemistry. Each of the experiments utilizes delightful illustrations to detail: the easy-to-find materials needed; the simple experimental steps; a set of basic questions for kids to ponder; and a concise explanation of the principles observed. As a chemistry professional who has worked in the scientific industry and as an early childhood educator, we highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, and other caregivers. It is a wonderful resource for introducing the scientific method and the excitement of hands-on discovery. We look forward to sharing this with our grandchildren when they become preschoolers.” —Peter B. Grasse, Ph.D. and Diane M. Grasse, M.Ed.
