Kim Norman has written a super-cute children's book. The cover is very inviting with gadgets intermingled with the letters of the title. Agnese Baruzzi did a fabulous job illustrating. Kids will love the rhyming words and the fact that each page builds upon the last one. A banner shows that the characters are having a science day. I love the different science elements that are brought into the story as it grows. I can imagine this story exciting students in class, or children being read to at home, and spurring science experiments galore. It is fast and easy to read. If I could change one thing I would have made Scott a girl. There aren't enough books out there depicting girls as scientist. Great read.
When Scott builds a bot, a bippity-bot, sparks fly . . . and his entire classroom goes wild. Before long, fiery ants and carnivorous plants, a freaky frog, a big-bellied boa, and an exploding "volcano" have wreaked total havoc. Can Scott's bot, which started it all, manage the mess? Cheers for the handy hero! A cumulative story with fun that grows and grows and GROWS.
