Oh, Ick! by Joy Masqff is a fantastic science book for kids! It has such a large variety of science and written in a language that kids get. It has many, many experiments that you can actually do and have the stuff for around the house! They are gross, slimy, stinky experiments, but fun to do and kids will love them. I had fun just reading them. The book also has great pictures and funny illustrations. Some of the subjects include insects, mummies, spit, toilets, viruses, worms, zits, poop, sinkholes, scabs, stitches, awful eats, boogers, blood, fossils, fungi, guts, bacteria, arachnids, burbs, farts, earwax, and icky ice cream. All of it has fun history, interesting tidbits that made me laugh, and gross stuff that made me laugh too. I learned from this book also! I am definitively going to buy this book for my grandkids! It is a long book so it will last kids a long time. I received this book for a honest review.
Oh, Ick!: 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out! by Joy Masoff consists of a lot of experiments that even I could do! They do look gross, but that's why kids will love them. Thanks to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for providing this ARC. I will suggest it to teachers and students alike! Who could resist farting, stinky, slimy experiments that you can learn from?
Great book about science complete with cool scientific experiments that kids can do, either on their own, or with the help of an adult. But the coolest thing about this book, is what the science is about, from farts to buggers to eyeballs. Kids that love to be grossed out, and yet want to know what all these things mean, will love this book.
My girls loved this book. We would pick this one up for sure great fun!
I gave this one to my son, and he went and did quite a few of the gross experiments himself. He is still in testing phase, but I can say that this book would be perfect for any kid who loves science. I think I need to buy the paper copy so he can bring it to show his teacher.
