Incredible book for any age to explore science and open questions as to how and why things work in nature in this age of amazing technology. There are a few projects in the book that even that my 4 year old grandchildren would understand and enjoy. This would be a great book to own for anyone who would like to keep children interested and occupied in projects that don't involve spending a fortune at the toy/electronics store, which is why it's named "junk drawer physics." Most things you'll need can be found there. And there are a lot of experiments in the book I want to try for myself! In this day of total automation it's even more important for young ones to know how and why things behave in our world without just pushing a button, touching a screen or sticking a new battery in a slot. Getting reacquainted with mother nature.
