How does a bird relate to an airplane or a rocket?  How does baby’s blocks relate to quarks and molecules? Using very simple words and illustrations, Spiro cuts to the heart of these similarities in a board book of all things.  I showed these books to my 8th grade science teachers and they went gaga over them!  This was exactly what they were looking for to demonstrate these concepts to their students.  Now they are eagerly waiting for me to buy copies for them and catalog them so that they can have them to use in their classrooms.  So they are worth a look almost any science classroom.

Oh, my! I'm so happy to see my books here and I'm delighted you found them helpful! I like to say that just because these are *about* a baby doesn't mean they're exclusively *for* babies. There's always something new we can all learn, especially when it comes to science. Thank you for sharing these books with your blog readers!
