Test This Book!: A Laugh-Out-Loud Picture Book about Experiments and Science! has a title is almost longer than the book. The basic idea is there are two scientists (a bear and a frog), and they are teaching you how to do experiments. They use a book (in fact the book you are holding) as the example. You need to see if you can shake a book and then you see what happens and record it. Also, other tests such as what happens if you sit on the book (and so on) are used. Some things are humorous but overall, I did not find anything overly funny.
Louie Zong created a book that teaches and explains about the scientific method. They have illustrations that are simple, but not simplistic in a negative way. They are sweet, colorful and help move the story along. The book is just a nice book. It might not become a classic, but it is a book that would be good for the classroom setting. Most ages could find something in it (the first/second grade solo reader, the budding scientist up to about grade 3, the young listener who will get a kick interacting with the book).
I was not overly impressed by Test This Book results, but I like the potential it has. I will certainly recommend it to teachers or homeschooling parents. You can adapt the types of experiments for the child’s age and ability or what limitations you have. Such as can you go outside, do you have siblings that could help, and so forth.
