Steve Spangler’s Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes

Non-fiction, science

Wow, is this a great book! Just from a visual perspective, you’ll agree. The photographs are stunning, the oversized, glossy pages are enticing, and the experiments look doable.

My kids and I tried Color Changing Milk first. And second. And third. Okay, and fourth.

(They kind of loved it.)

See what happened:

Beautiful. EASY. Fun.

Then, we tried Floating Water.

It worked!? Cool.

Other experiments include:

  • Bubbling Lava Bottle
  • The Incredible Can Crusher
  • Nails for Breakfast
  • The Folding Egg
  • Quicksand Goo
  • Screaming Balloon
  • Burning Money
  • Trash Can Smoke Rings
  • Glacier Gak
  • Flying Toilet Paper
    and many, many more!

= 29 experiments, 248 color photographs, and 1 giveaway to a lucky reader! And, if you don’t win, this would be a GREAT gift for a child. (It’s got everything — the word naked, science experiments, and lots of messiness.)

If you’re in Colorado, don’t miss Steve at the Tattered Cover on September 16!

WIN Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes! E-mail your name and address to with “Naked Eggs” in the subject line. We will randomly select one lucky winner to receive a  copy of the book. Deadline for entry is midnight MST on September 26, 2010.

*I received the book as a gift from Steve Spangler.
