Description

Product Description

What happens if you water plants with juice? 
Where can you find bacteria in your house?
Is slug slime as strong as a glue stick?


How would your child find the answers to these questions? In  The Curious Kid''s Science Book, your child will learn to design his or her own science investigations to determine the answers! Children will learn to ask their own scientific questions, discover value in failed experiments, and -- most importantly -- have a blast with science. The 100+ hands-on activities in the book use household items to playfully teach important science, technology, engineering, and math skills. Each creative activity includes age-appropriate explanations and (when possible) real life applications of the concepts covered. Adding science to your at-home schedule will make a positive impact on your child''s learning. Just one experiment a week will help build children''s confidence and excitement about the sciences, boost success in the classroom, and give them the tools to design and execute their own science fair projects.

Review

“Asia’s The Curious Kid’s Science Book is not just another book of experiments to fill a rainy day. This book guides parents through the process of inspiring a sense curiosity in children, and developing a set of skills to help them problem solve, and be scientific thinkers. Through real-life experience, Citro demonstrates that even very young children can design experiments, document progress, and share their discoveries in a meaningful way. While the book is full of easy, fun, and meaningful science activities, its real value is its approach to helping parents inspire a sense of exploration and discovery that will benefit their children long after they have grown.”

“This is a delightful book that draws on a child’s natural curiosity to impart the basics of scientific inquiry—from question to hypothesis to experiment to the results and conclusions. Children will love it and parents will learn some things, too.”

—Dr. Henry L. Roediger III
James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor

“Asia Citro is a welcome new voice in the world of science education. As an educator and mother of two young children, she has a deep understanding that children are naturally curious, ask good questions, and freely investigate the world around them when given the chance. What The Curious Kid’s Science Book does so well, which so many science books for kids tend to miss, is the celebration of this innate curiosity and penchant for experimentation. With this understanding in hand, this book encourages children not to replicate tried and true science projects, but to ask their own questions and think like real scientists! From building a hypothesis to testing out theories, The Curious Kid’s Science Book will harness the scientist inside children and their adult counterparts. Bravo!”

—Rachelle Doorley

“I am a firm believer in the power of children’s questions to open doors to discovery. Asia Citro has unlocked that power in this collection of explorations that even the youngest of scientists will enjoy.”
—Tom Robinson
National Board Certified Teacher
Bestselling author of The Everything Kids’ Science Experiments Book


“Perhaps children are the best scientists and explorers because they aren’t afraid to ask the question ‘Why?’ I encourage you to use the easy-to-do hands-on activities in this book to fuel your children’s innate creativity and problem-solving skills. Plus, without knowing it, they’ll have fun learning science and math!”

—Captain Wendy Lawrence
Former NASA astronaut


“Based on the premise that young children are curious, observant, and determined problem solvers, The Curious Kid’s Science Book is a brilliant resource that will get teachers and parents of young children excited about exploring the world of science in the classroom or at home. Asia has photographed a wonderful and broad collection of easy-to-put-into-action scientific investigations and shared them along with simple tips for keeping science fun and engaging. As you and your child get busy exploring the ideas shared throughout Asia''s book, your young scientist will be developing the confidence and basic skills needed to be a capable and competent problem solver in many areas of life!”

—Deborah J. Stewart
Founder of TeachPreschool.org

“As an educator who values creativity, discovery, exploring, and experimenting, I’m thrilled to recommend Asia Citro’s science activity book that encourages kids to ask their own questions. Kids will explore answers and investigate their own outcomes, building on curiosity and creative inspiration. I especially like that easy-to-find materials are used. What a playful, powerful jump into science!”

—MaryAnn F. Kohl

I wouldn’t recommend this. I strongly dislike that it does not give specific info about what variables create what effects. A good science book should tell parents what to expect with various experiments so that we can help shape the most enjoyable and educational experience for our kids whatever their level of interest is and this book doesn’t do that. Kid losing interest? Add some vinegar. Kid loves it? Here are some open ended ways to help them explore.

Things I love about this book:
- the addition of color - food color to liquids, colored masking tape for construction etc all make it attractive to kids
- simple supplies - baking soda, soil, seeds vinegar, recycled plastic/paper all inexpensive, convenient
- simple to execute - kids have short attention spans so that''s super helpful
- kids (girls & boys) in the photos with big smiles! what a nice change to black/white schematics of beakers and liquids
- the division into sections on plants/food/engineering/bacteria etc little groups of experiments in each section

My 4 year old will request a few experiments as bed-time reading on weekdays and then on the weekend we''d find time to do one of the easy ones. Convenient and entertaining. I''ve gifted this to others with little kids.

As a homeschooler and science major, I feel this book is a must in my children''s classroom and curriculum. It focuses on allowing children to explorer scientific concepts on their own without being fed every answer. It does give project ideas that require a little bit of preparation and guidance but encourages parents and teachers to allow the student/child to ask questions, complete the experiment, and then answer the questions they asked. It focuses on using the scientific method on a beautiful manner for young learners.

I looked through several science books at the library for my toddlers, and this one had the best experiments (easy to do, very entertaining for little kids to be amused and curious). The only thing I wish it did more is provide more guidance on how to do the experiments and provide more insights on how we can help explain the concepts to little kids. It does a good job at guiding parents on the questions to ask, but provide little to help answer them in a way that little kids can understand. Though most if just a Google search away so it wasn''t a deal breaker for us. Overall it''s still a great book.

We love, love, LOVE this book! So much, in fact, that it''s become a go-to birthday party gift when paired with some of the items needed for the experiments and it''s always a total party hit. What I love most about it is that at 5 years old, my daughter can take the book, gather her supplies, and try many of the explorations independently based on the beautiful photographs included throughout. I love that she''s learning all about the scientific process through actually experiencing it. Highly recommend!
