Charlotte the Scientist is Squished by Camille Andros - ADVISABLE

Andros, Camille Charlotte the Scientist is Squished, illustrated by Brianne Farley.  PICTURE BOOK.  Clarion (Houghton), 2017, $17.

Charlotte the bunny doesn’t have the room she needs to be a serious scientist.  Using the scientific method, she tests a couple of different hypotheses and then puts the most likely one into practice.  After a short time she realizes that her conclusion needs some modification and she goes back to the scientific method drawing board. 

One of our 8th grade science teachers liked this very much.  There is a little potty humor, but he wasn’t worried about the distraction at all.
