School Library Journal
A creative work that gives readers an opportunity to experience scientific terms and processes with familiar objects and recipes. For instance, a salad dressing comprised of oil and vinegar makes for a fun lesson about the properties of matter, chemical reactions are demonstrated with invisible ink on sandwiches, and lasagna provides a way to observe sedimentary layers. Scientific terms are explained in each chapter, and recipes are given and reinforced with a glossary. Bright illustrations and clear instructions will appeal to younger readers, while older readers will find the concepts and vocabulary educational; the recipes will appeal to a wide range of ages. An accessible and engaging title that should please even reluctant readers.
