Charlotte the Scientist
Clarion Books, 2017
Charlotte is a serious scientist. She solves important problems by following the scientific method. She has all the right equipment: protective glasses, a lab coat, a clipboard, and a magnifying glass. What she doesn’t have is space. She has so many brothers and sisters (she is a rabbit, after all) that she is too squished to work on her experiments! Can she use science to solve her problem? This funny, satisfying story is a playful introduction to the scientific method and perfect for inspiring an interest in STEM subjects.
"This picture book debut is a smart tale of familial frustrations and resulting ingenuity that’s sure to resonate with makers and readers with their own share of pesky siblings. Farley’s illustrations—done in charcoal, pencil, and ink on paper and colored digitally—are filled with humorous touches that invite repeat viewing (watch how Charlotte’s bunny ears communicate her feelings)." - School Library Journal, starred review
"Loads of charm." - Kirkus Reviews
"Andros’ science-laced text and Farley’s animated scenes, replete with amusing antics and hilarious facial expressions, will get kids laughing and learning." - Booklist
