I love this book! There's so much out there on the Internet, but I found this book brings more to the table and rather than just give cute projects, there are well thought out explanations to each project and expansion activities as well. Great pictures and very appealing to kids
I bought this for a 4 year old's birthday present. Great ideas to prompt your child to interact with parents as well as nature! I put this in a basket along with some supplies to start some project and it made a great gift!
I'm so excited about using this book to inspire us to get outside and explore more this year! There are so many amazing activities, and the photography is beautiful, which really draws my son in and gets him interesting in trying new things. I especially love the combination of art and science in this book, and the author has a gift for creating science activities that actually get kids doing science themselves.
What an amazing resource for fun things to do with your kids! I purchased all three books and I must say they are all wonderful and well worth the investment. We have completed several of the projects already and plan to do some every week. There are so many fun things and variations that it will take us all year to complete and then we can start all over again! What I love most about the projects is most of them use every day things you have at your house and if you don't have something it's not an expensive item to buy especially if you are a member of Sams or Costco. I highly recommend the liquid watercolors as they are fun to work with, do not stain and have a much more vibrant color. I honestly don't know who is having more fun, the kids playing in all of our creations or me getting to prepare and make the projects! It is fun for the entire family and gives you plenty to do inside or outside. The learning that happens is absolutely wonderful!!
My 7 year old daughter loves this book. She wanders through the pages, finds something fun, and then drags her 4 year old brother around the house or backyard to gather items and execute the project. It's creative fun that is definitly building their self confidence and creativity. We love it!
Asia Citro is seriously one of our favorite authors for kid's activity books! It's all very accessible and down to earth and gives us good prompts (and clear directions when we need them!) for helping our kids embrace science in their daily lives.
I got it as a gift for a little girl my daughter knows. The girl is very shy and doesn't seem to have a lot of interests except for the usual (Barbies, Disney stuff etc.). I was very concerned so thought this book might expand her horizons without being out and out "scientific." Well, she loved this book. I'd gotten another book by the same author with similar results so decided to try this and was very happy with the results.
I just purchased A Little Bit of Dirt to use in my family daycare. There are so many great ideas and activities in this book that are easy to do with the kids. They have already marked several pages in the book. I know they and I will have a blast with this book!
