Libby Loves ScienceFeatured
Libby and her friends use teamwork, creativity, and just a bit of chemistry to turn things around and prove that science is for everyone. Perfect for aspiring scientists, story times, classrooms, home-schooling, and fans of Andrea Beaty’s Ada Twist, Scientist. Includes a glossary and four super-fun experiments to try at home!
Libby Loves Science is just right for fans of Rosie Revere, Engineer and What Do You Do with an Idea? and anyone who loves to ask questions and learn about the world.
What I loved: I adore books that feature girls excelling in STEM, and this was an excellent example. Libby is such a fun character, and her love of science shines through every page. I also love the diversity of characters here, which is so important in books. The illustrations were all full of color and fun details that make this a delight to look through.
The book is pretty wordy, although the story itself is great. This would be better for older picture book readers (elementary school aged children) who can appreciate the story without minding the length.
Final verdict: Bringing the love of STEM to children, LIBBY LOVES SCIENCE is a pleasure to read and share with elementary school-aged readers. Recommend for children who may be exploring the sciences and those who don't yet see the appeal.
