    I work at a public library in the US. This year our summer reading theme is science, and I plan to share many of these experiments at my story times. Thank you so much, Anna.

    I recently tried out your grow beans in a jar experiment with the kids I teach in Kindergarden. I have very fond memories of doing this in School too. The kids absolutely loved it but before we did the experiment I read Jack and the beanstalk and told them we were growing our own magic beanstalk.
