Most children love to experience the sticky sensation of putting their hands in and playing with slime. Johnson spends the first chapter explaining the scientific background for slime. Children not only can use their senses but learn about polymers, viscosity, and chemical reactions. I was not aware of the numerous possibilities available to work with slime. The variations are endless. Basic slime recipes include candy cane slime and butter slime. Slime can be made edible or glitter may be added to it. There are recipes that can be made especially for holidays like glow in the dark slime, cranberry slime, pumpkin slime, Valentine's slime, and Leprechaun slime. Johnson explains the history of glue in detail and follows this with a recipe for different types of glue and how to use them. He even has a recipe for blowing bubbles and writing with chalkboard slime.
Photos of the different recipes are sprinkled throughout the book. I wish I had this book when my children were growing up because I am sure we would have experienced hours of fun and learning. But it is not too late because a child of any age (including adults) will love experimenting with this book.
