WE DARE YOU SCIENCE BOOK
Win Money From Children!
"WE DARE YOU!" by Vicki Cobb is a 322-page book for children, filled with over (300) scientific challenges and experiments that can be done with ordinary household stuff. A savvy adult could introduce kids to science by betting them their allowance money on the afore-mentioned challenges, including making square eggs without using a square chicken, writing with potatoes, blowing frozen soap bubbles, and a whole bunch more.

SCIENTIFIC POSTCARDS WITH PERIODIC SYMBOL SPELLINGS
Can You Spell Periodically?
You can with this set of (30) scientifical postcards, each with Famous Scientist Quotes and some of the words spelled out using the symbols from the periodic table. It’s America’s first atomic vocabulary lesson, i.e. UNIVERSE is spelled [U]ranium, [Ni]ckel, [V[anadium [Er]bium, [Se]lenium. Cards are heavy duty, 6-1/2” x 4-3/4” bound into, and pop-outable from, a little book. Lovely illustrations, too.

SCIENCE SURPRISES BOOK WITH EXPERIMENTS
Surprise! Surprise!
Surprise your parents with a little science at home. “Science Surprises” is a 192-page paperback in its third edition with over 100 experiments that can be done using common household goodies. OK, a couple of things might require a trip to the hardware store, but still.  The science ranges from the Bernoulli principle and Stroop effect to making your own perfume and cold cream. (And remember what Shaw said: “Science never solves a problem without creating ten more,” so that makes a thousand experiments.)

GONZO GIZMOS BOOK
How Does It Work?
Why does it do that? Develop an elemental understanding of magnetism, electromagnetism, electrochemistry, radio, thermodynamics, light and optics. Simon Quellen Field's 228-page paperback, Gonzo Gizmos, Projects & Devices to Channel your Inner Geek explains processes, equipment and scientific terms -- and then, for starters, tells you things like how to make a rotary steam engine in 15 minutes from a soda can, a candle and a few scraps of rubber tubing. It's the favorite of our resident geeks -- but not for kids unless they're working with an adult. That would be a mature adult. An insured, mature adult.

SCIENCE ACTIVITY BOOK
Science For Kids
We like The Usborne Book of Science Activities a whole bunch. It’s volume one of the Helen Edom and Kate Woodward series, a 74-page hardcover that includes experiments with water, magnets, light and mirrors, with plenty of puzzles and projects--profusely illustrated, throughout. Handy for keeping your young one's mind in shape when not in school or as family learning projects.

SCRUNCHMAP U.S. MAP WITH POUCH
Scrunchy Country
The land of the ponytail? No, just a way to have a map that you never have to fold. Scrunchmap is a 36" x 24" full color geographic map the U.S. with portions of Canada and Mexico thrown in at no extra charge. It's water and tear resistant so you can roll it up, scrunch it into a ball, stick it into the 5" pouch it comes with or just shove it into your pocket. Scale is 1:5,395,000 and shows population centers, some interstate highways, state capitals, national parks and a few other highlights.
