" I don't have kids and I don't plan on doing any of these experiments because I read this for a project. But if I DID need kid-friendly science, this is the book I'd come to. " said.

" All of the experiments involve either water or a microwave. Not recommended. " said.

" Love the mix of candy and science - makes it fun for kids. My boys loved this book! I have three boys age 5-9 and they each had to do the experiments. Loved watching the excitement on my childrens faces! I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley. " said.

" This is an excellent science book for middle-graders. The book was organized by various themes, but all the materials used in the experiments were readily available household items. It was a lot of fun trying out various experiments in this book with my kids. " said.

" Another fantastic collection of surprising, amazing, crazy things to do with candy. Sweet science sneaks in as kids create candy geysers, cotton candy stained glass, chocolate sawdust and more. Great for snow days, birthday parties, or post-Halloween candy purges, not to mention science fairs. " said.

" Kids love to play with their food so what better thing to do than perform actual scientific experiments with candy! Kids, with the help of an adult, can melt, dissolve, crystallize and shatter a variety of candies as they learn about chemical properties. Each experiment even provides science fair ideas so these projects can move beyond the home kitchen to the school. Colorful photographs accompany each experiment exemplifying the process and results. " said.

"Candy Experiments 2 by Loralee Leavitt includes over 60 new science experiments using candy.
Chapters include:
Acid & Bases
Density
Light
Crystals
Melt
Dissolve
Just add (or remove) Water
Free the bubbles
and Just for Fun.

There is also sections on experiment tips and candy experiment science fair projects. The author includes with each experiment the necessary information such as how long the experiment will take, skill level, what you will need, what to do and an explanation as to what is happening and why.She also includes cautionary notes when needed for experiments that are hot to the touch etc. so that no one gets hurt. Some of the experiments contain more candy experiment ideas to expand on what is being taught.

I found these experiments very informative. The author does an excellent job explaining why the kids are getting the reaction they are out of their candies well enough for the target age group to understand what is going on.

The page's are laid out in such a way that it easily attracts the reader's attention and shows them how fun these experiments can be. This book will easily be a hit for any child interested in science and even those who aren't by making science fun.

Some fun experiments include making a Gummy Frog Swim, Bend a Straw without touching it and Bending Light.

I received this book from Goodreads giveaway for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

"This book is a great collection of scientific experiments to carry out on candy (aka sweets in the UK!), beautifully presented with sound scientific principles used throughout and readers encouraged to analyse and interpret their findings.

With nine different sections ranging from ‘Acids and Bases’ to ‘Density’ and ‘Just for Fun’, this book contains some seventy different experiments, most involving sweets or candy, for children to carry out. It starts off with some simple but essential safety guidelines, moves on to scientific processes and tips to help come up with creating good science fair projects, including links to a website to help with this.

Each of the nine sections starts by sharing facts and theories relating to that section’s scientific concept. Then the fun starts with the actual experiments. These are well presented with an indication of the time required, the skill level, the question being investigated, what you will need and what to do. When adult supervision is required, the reader will find the skill level is shown as ‘Get a grown-up’. What is happening is then explained and more fun activities or science fair ideas to follow up this experiment are suggested. When new vocabulary is introduced, these are highlighted and explained. Beautiful images are used throughout the book to help illustrate and enhance the text. The book also has a contents page and index.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too
for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
