Very nice book. I read this book to my 5yr old for kindergarten science because it says it's for K-4. My son loved it. He colored corresponding pictures in the K Building Blocks of Science Workbook chemistry section. The concepts are pure chemistry put so simply. I don't know that my son will become a chemist but then again after this section of science and the simple child-friendly explanations of chemistry, he just might. He loved it, I loved it! Science really is not intimidating with Real Science 4 Kids. Highly recommend.
