Good morning! Today I’m sharing some awesome science experiment books for kids; some of which we’ve used ourselves. From astronomy to gastronomy, there are lots of fun ways to learn! Speaking of science, were you lucky enough to catch the eclipse earlier this week? We only had a partial view here in the UK, but we were under heavy fog at the time (but check out what our almost full solar eclipse looked like two years ago here). If you have pictures, share them on our Facebook page, I’d love to see them!

Each week a few of us put together a great selection of books on a given topic and bring them to you to help narrow down the choices for you, each of our hosts share different titles, so have a look around each of our posts for wider choice.
To make things even easier for you, I have provided Amazon links to these books for both my American and British readers (just click on the link and you’ll be automatically directed to your county’s Amazon store). Enjoy!
