The Suzie the Scientist early reader series links reading development to the wonders of science. This 24-book series features an engaging ’cool’ scientist (Suzie) who engages children, empowers parents and facilitates scientific learning while developing reading skills.
Whacky Materials: In this book Suzie the Scientist helps us learn about different materials and the uses we have for them. We learn that using certain materials for certain objects is not a good choice (for example, using paper for raincoats or glass for hammers). Suzie also teaches us how the use of a material is dictated by its properties. This book addresses the learning outcome “Objects are made of materials that have observable properties”.
This is such a fun book for kids to be able to combine learning to read with the love science. Linking reading development to scientific literacy ... what a great idea!! The Suzie the Scientist books are a must get series for teachers everywhere.
