Crime Lab by Robert Gardner

Stars: ***1/2

This is a kid’s non-fiction book about the Science of Crime. Crime Detecting has become very popular amongst everyone thanks to the CSI shows. It’s amazing what you can find out from such small items. This is a good book for the adult as well as the kid. It’s an easy to understand explanation of fingerprinting as well as lip and toe printing; forensic dentistry; Handwriting and typewriting anaylsis; ballistics (guns, bullets); blood and DNA; Matching glass and fibers and lots more. Very interesting. It also has Experiments to do in each section for kids to learn more about forensics. Great book for anyone putting on a Crime Scene Camp for kids.
