KIRKUS REVIEW

Those who follow the myriad of so-called ""books of experiments for young scientists"" will find little that is new here. The focus of the activities is a pan (or bathtub) of water; the experiences range from the extremely simple (a floating compass) to the more complex (molecular attractions in a drop of water). Although activity-oriented, this nevertheless manages to be quite expositional. Many unanswered questions are posed but one gets the feeling of a liberal sprinkling to satisfy the recent desire for the stimulation of inquiry, the book meanwhile remaining aloof from this aspect of science.
