Obviously this book is benefited by a "DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME" disclaimer, but such content also provides a wonderful opportunity. 11 Experiments That Failed would be a great book to use as a launching point for your own discussion with your child

Grades K-3. Fiction. A curious young girl tries a series of wacky experiments, such as seeing if a piece of bologna will fly like a frisbee and determining whether seedlings will grow if watered with expensive perfume, and then must suffer the consequences of experiments gone awry.

My four-year-old enjoys having this one read to her. She thinks the experiments and their outcomes are funny. I like the opportunity to talk to her about what an experiment is, maybe how the girl could change her experiment to better find the answers to her questions. I also like that they include terms like "hypothesis" and "what you need." It shows that you have to plan an experiment, it doesn't just happen.
