Libby loves science! In this STEM-themed picture book, a companion to the popular Cece Loves Science, Libby and her friends are put in charge of the science booth at their school fair. There’s only one problem: No one is visiting their booth! Does everyone think science is boring?

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.

LIBBY LOVES SCIENCE is a cute picture book that brings a love of science to all the fun of ice cream and other experiments. Science is made really tangible through Libby, who talks about the need to measure ingredients precisely and test your hypotheses. Scientists do make the best bakers afterall! Libby loves science so much that she volunteers to help design her class's booth about science at the fair, and the prize for the winning booth is an ice cream party.

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.
