Set of two: Exploratopia: More than 400 kid-friendly experiments and explorations for curious minds by The Exploratorium

From Booklist: “... presents a lively compendium of science information, activities, and experiments. Divided into three broad sections, this large-format book supports a hands-on approach to learning. "Exploring Yourself" includes sections on the eyes, the ears, the nose and tongue, the hands, and the brain. "Exploring Interesting Places" offers things to learn in kitchens, bathrooms, backyards, playgrounds, amusement parks, and beaches. "Exploring Interesting Stuff" looks into language, music, math, money, paper, optical illusions, light, color, electricity, magnetism, and sound. With many color photos, cartoon-style drawings, and well-labeled diagrams, the book is brightly illustrated and visually appealing, from its eye-catching endpapers right through to the appended (and sure-to-be-consulted) "Hints, Tips, & Answers." Better written and more engaging than most science experiment books, this book encourages children to learn through reading, observations, and experimentation. Carolyn Phelan
