Show Me How I Can Experiment

Photos take the guesswork out of food preparation in 50 Recipes for Kids to Cook by Judy Williams, the latest in the Step-by-Step series. From ""See-in-the-Dark Soup"" (full of carrots), to a ""Gingerbread Jungle"" (cookies) to homemade ravioli and a crown roast of lamb, these ambitious recipes use photos to demonstrate each major step. ) Kids can stir up some non-edible creations with instructions from I Can Experiment by Steve and Jane Parker, the newest installment in the Show-Me-How series. Brightly lit photographs illustrate the simple (holding water upside-down) and the sensational (a fizzing, vinegar volcano). All of the experiments emphasize that science can be an endless source of wonder and discovery. (Smithmark, $7.98 48p ages 6-10 ISBN 0-8317-7263-8, June)
