    I'm looking for a good science book for preschoolers. I have heard mixed reviews of the GIANT one, and am having a hard time finding something with good ideas. Anyone have any favourites?

    Preschoolers, hm? See if Usborne has anything to suit you: http://www.ubah.com/b1854. There are lots of goodies there; not many are directly accessible to kids that age, but some of them are fine classroom resources, and a few are fairly early readers.

    A great book that I absolutely love is Lisa Murphy's Even More Fizzle Pop and Wow!, this book is amazing. You can get her book on the ooeygooey site.

    I like "science is simple" ..go to the gryphon house website and they have tons of sample activities from each of their books (and they have lots of science books!)
