Wrong book

I ordered the revised edition. I got the original, not what I wanted.

Eat to learn!

This book is great for introducing various science concepts to children, and has many recipes that can be used and then eaten! Includes muffins, jell-o, rock candy, and more.

Get your kids excited about science!

We discovered the original 1974 version of this book in our school library. After a quick perusal, we realized it was a fantastically fun way to teach kids science. The kids love the experiments and they are so easy to follow. Now, we use it everyday in our lesson planning in order to teach the scientific method. What a great way to use all five senses to make learning fun and real-world applicable!


What a great way to teach science. Children learn best when they can relate to what they are learning and they can relate to most food. Tell them, they forget; show them they remember; but once they've made it and eaten it they will understand(paraphrase of a chinese proverb). I consider this a significant book in our collection for teachers and future teachers.
