This is a treasure trove of materials and ideas to help parents engage their children in scientific discovery. The book opens with background on methods of teaching science and superb examples of encouraging inquiry in children. It also treats: answering questions; methods of research; using community resources; discovering school science fairs and competitions. An exceptional chapter on science literature for children provides reading suggestions and sources for locating new materials. The major part of the book is devoted to annotated lists of science tools, toys, materials, and games. An excellent tool for parents and educators of elementary and middle school children.
