This quest of gastronomic wonder is so much more than just another science book for kids! It explores the science of food by asking questions you’re hungry to know the answers to and putting them to the test through fun experiments. Cooking is just delicious chemistry, and the science experiments in this adorable kids cookbook will prove it. Once you understand science, you understand food. Find out why popcorn goes “pop” as you test it out for yourself. Explore how taste is affected by smell, know if carrots really can turn you orange, and finally discover whether eating insects is the future of food.
There is a fantastic mix of fun facts and knowledge, context, and science experiments for kids in this educational book. The experiments are easy to execute at home with things you have around the kitchen. The instructions are detailed but easy to understand, so some kids could even adventure solo through its pages. Enjoy the delightful weirdness of tricking your taste buds, making slime taste delicious, investigating some of the strangest flavors around, and extracting iron from your cereal! Science You Can Eat helps your little one understand what’s happening with their food and why. Each page is guaranteed to leave you hungry for more – we’d wager even adults will learn a thing or two from this culinary escapade.
