Book Author MaryAnn F Kohl, December 3, 2009 (view all comments by Book Author MaryAnn F Kohl)
"ScienceArts" brings art to children in a splashy explode-y and very exciting way -- through science experiments! This book appeals to all kids, but most of all, kids who need an oooo-ahhhh factor to keep them interested will love it. Adults will appreciate the scientific "hints" given to explain what really happened (and fun to share with kids who always want to know more). As with all of my books, the finished product is not as important as the discovery and experimentation with the art process. Every child loves to explore. ScienceArts builds on the natural curiosity of each child while combining the beauty of art and the fascination of science. No expertise is needed by adult or child. Just jump in and feel comfortable and open with the activities. This is pure fun!
