This nifty and appealing book should attract and engage children, parents, and teachers. Wiese, a science educator in British Columbia, explains in his introduction how you can be a good scientist, and how to use the book to do a science project. He also mentions that adult help is needed for many of the experiments (something also noted in the experiments themselves).
