Science Verse by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith

Scieszka and Smith have written many other classic children’s books( maybe not, but they should be) such as The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Stinky Cheese Man.

I also hear that these two have a fairly well known book called Math Curse. But because the word “math” is in the title I have never touched it.

Science Verse now that’s a whole different ball game.

A funny ball game.

Here is a little excerpt:

Mary Had A…
Mary had a little worm.
She thought it was a chigger.
But everything that Mary ate,
only made it bigger.

It came with her to school one day,
And gave the kids a fright,
Especially when the teacher said,
“Now that’s a parasite.”

Would I recommend it? Of course! It has parasites, water cycles, states of matter and black holes all set to vaguely familiar rhymes and poems.
