"Kids have a natural desire to learn and experiment," said Sobey, a University of Washington instructor and author of several science book, including the newly published "Wacky Water Fun with Science" and "Fantastic Flying Fun with Science." If parents foster that, then kids will grow up naturally empowered to think like a scientist." ( Seattle Times 2000-04-01)Book Description:
