My Review: 

Steve Spangler published his first book, Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes in 2010 and it was an instant hit for science fans and teachers everywhere. In 2011, his second book, Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste was published to the delight of his fans.

If you are looking for a book of science experiments to do with your children, Naked Eggs and Fire Bubbles are the perfect books. Each book offers a variety of experiments to do at home or at school with clear instructions, a list of simple materials, and a lesson on the science behind the activity. The experiments are easy to follow with “Let’s Try It,” “What’s Going on Here,” “Real World Applications” and “Take it Further” sections.

Fire Bubbles also offers a special “Teachers Only” section full of science demonstrations for the classroom teacher. And yes, these books make the perfect teacher gift this holiday season.

My favorite part of both books are the color photographs. Who knew science photography could be so captivating and breath-taking?

Here is a short list of experiments available in Naked Eggs:

  • 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

Here is a short list of the experiments in Fire Bubbles:

  • Floating Bowling Balls
  • Pop Bottle Music
  • Bouncing Smoke Bubbles
  • Walking on Eggshells
  • Balancing Nails
  • Fireproof Balloon
  • Skateboard Rocket Car

You can’t beat today’s price for both books. Purchase the set for the Deal of the Day and receive both books for the price of one. They are beautiful coffee table, classroom companion, kitchen science, or homeschooling science lessons books and so much more.
