The Mail on Sunday - You - - Health - BY DAWN ISAAC (KYLE BOOKS, £14.99*)

Grand­mother and re­tired head­mistress Kath Dun­ning was im­pressed by this en­gag­ing book. ‘Any­one who has to en­ter­tain chil­dren couldn’t do better than in­vest in this,’ she says. ‘It of­fers a huge range of sci­ence-based ex­per­i­ments for all ages, with eas­ily found re­sources – many round the home. The in­struc­tions are easy to fol­low, of­ten hu­mor­ous, and there’s a sum­mary for each ac­tiv­ity ex­plain­ing the sci­ence be­hind it. The book keeps young­sters happy and they learn things; it’s a win-win.’
