I have to say I am a fan girl...Stephanie Bearce is not only a friend, but the queen of research. Her series Twisted True Tales From Science can attribute to her amazing researching skills and her great voice. She doesn't dumb down her science she makes is just right for her readers. I would recommend her books for third through fifth grade and second grade if they are exceptional readers.
Twisted True Tales From Science: Insane Inventors
Don't Try This At Home...might be another good title for this book.
Third through fifth graders will love reading about these crazy and successful inventors who tried far to many experiments at home or on themselves. It's amazing how many scientist experimented on themselves to provide us with modern medicine and technology. Many of these scientists injured themselves or even died for the good of others.
Another great read by Stephanie Bearce!
