Welcome to Middle Grade Monday! Today I am checking in with a non-fiction title, Edible Science- Experiments You Can Eat, from national Geographic Kids and put together by Jodi Wheeler-Toppen and Carol Tennant.
The pictures are spot on and help guide kids through the process. The book gives you the list of supplies and ingredients and step by step instructions. There are also safety steps and advice for when a parent is needed. Of course, the science scoop is also given for every single recipe, so kids know what's happening and can look for the expected results.
So, of course I had to give it a try as part of my review. My son picked out the one recipe he wanted to try, baked Alaska, which teaches about insulation from heat. We followed all the steps, I suggest one extra egg white because our two didn't make enough for four cakes. (Picture to the right).It was a lot of funny baking it by his side and it worked just as the book said it would, and of course, it was yummy. He's already picked out his next recipe/experiment, mock apple pie.
