My Review

Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder Is such an exciting book. So many things to do with kids, perfect for a rainy day, or snow days like we had last week! The book is wonderfully illustrated and with many diagrams to help you along. There is quite a lot of text to go alongside the experiments so I would recommend it for ages 8+ children any younger would struggle with the text I would think.

As an adult interested in Science I found reading the book, very refreshing and rewarding, it’s too young for baby girl to take part in, but she happily sat next to me looking at the pages as I was reading along.
