Meet Miss Mary at Main Library!
"My most exciting science experiment: When my sons were grade-school age, we would launch rockets. We shot up small ones and some that were quite large. Most of the rockets we were able to retrieve but occasionally one landed on a roof. We had so much fun launching rockets, my one son actually did his science fair project on model rocketry involving many rocket experiments."
"My favorite summer time activity: Grilling out with family and friends."
Miss Mary would like to recommend these science books!
This book is the latest in the “Lives of…….series” written by Kathleen Krull. The book revolves around the lives of 20 scientists, both men and women, and what they contributed to the science world. What makes this book unique is the how each scientist is presented. Each biography is brief, with amazing illustrations and out-of–the-ordinary facts about the person and what they did. The question presented to the reader is: “How would their neighbors have viewed them?” Lives of the Scientists is a fun book to read for biography lovers of all ages.
The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara
Recommended for ages 3 - 7
I enjoy the many versions of the “Three Little Pigs” so when I came across this particular book, I had to check it out. It is an out-of-this world version that takes the reader on a tour of the solar system and back to earth again in time for bed. There is a mama alien and her three little aliens who live in a very small house on a tiny planet (Mercury). They leave to find their way into the universe and of course come upon the Big Bad Robot! Their travels take them to all the planets in our solar system and back again. Children will love the fun illustrations as well as the familiar story line which just happens to take place in outer space.
