Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. Creative science-minded youngsters will enjoy the latest entries in the Design and Create series. Each book contains 12 projects nicely presented in a colorful double-page-spread layout. Each project includes a list of materials, numbered step-by-step instructions with photos, and a captioned picture showing a real-life application for the principles demonstrated by the project. Many of the projects are also accompanied by a "Now Try This" section, which suggests a project variation that is usually more challenging than the original. Water Projects includes instructions for making a drink machine, a waterwheel, and a dredger, as well as many different types of boats. A cookie crusher and bubble machine are among the projects in Simple Machines. Although the materials needed for the projects are not always commonly found in the home, they will be easy to locate elsewhere. The books will inspire students at science fair time and also provide teachers with good resources for classroom experiments. --Lauren Peterson"
