Perfect for aspiring scientists, emerging readers, and fans of Andrea Beaty's Ada Twist, Scientist. Cece loves science-and experimenting! In this Cece Loves Science Level 3 I Can Read!, Cece's teacher, Miss Curie, explains the opposite forces of push and pull. To demonstrate this concept, she divides the class into two teams. Each team must make a treat dispenser for Cece's dog, Einstein, that uses both forces. Cece and her classmates rely on science, creativity, and teamwork-and they learn a lot along the way. The Cece Loves Science books introduce readers to basic concepts of science, technology, engineering, and math, and are perfect for the classroom. This Level 3 I Can Read! focuses on basic scientific vocabulary and includes a glossary of terms and fun activities for readers to try on their own. A great pick for beginning readers!

Working together, the girls use meteorology and math to determine the location of the storm; engineering to build a shelter; and technology and math to calculate the length of the trek back to the campsite. After all that teamwork, Cece's mom gives them an Adventure Girl surprise! Illustrated by Vashti Harrison, author and illustrator of the New York Times-bestselling Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, Cece Loves Science and Adventure is just right for curious kids and anyone who loves to explore the great outdoors.
