Family eBook of The Day
Funny and totally true childhood biographies and full-color illustrations tell tales from the challenging yet defining growing-up years of Albert Einstein, Jane Goodall, Marie Curie, and 12 other brilliant scientists.
Every great scientist started out as a kid. Before their experiments, inventions, and discoveries that changed the world, the world’s most celebrated scientists had regular-kid problems just like you. Stephen Hawking hated school, and preferred to spend his free time building model airplanes, inventing board games, and even building his own computer. Jane Goodall got in trouble for bringing worms and snails into her house. And Neil deGrasse Tyson had to start a dog-walking business to save up money to buy a telescope.
Kid Scientists tells the stories of a diverse and inclusive group—also including Temple Grandin, Nikola Tesla, Ada Lovelace, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Rosalind Franklin, Sally Ride, Rachel Carson, George Washington Carver, and Vera Rubin—through kid-friendly texts and full-color cartoon illustrations on nearly every page.

Lyrical and stunningly illustrated with full-page watercolors, this is the first volume in Yossi Lapid and Joanna Pasek newly published Yara’s Rainforest series, showing children how all living things on our beautiful planet depend on one another.
On the bank of the river, in a house made of wood,
Close to the place where the scared seedling stood,
A hard-working mother and her kindhearted child,
Lived freely together, eating food from the wild.
Yara hugged Mama and went off to the woods
For mushrooms and berries and other such goods.
But something strange happened: A parrot named Chant,
Led her down a small path to the terrified plant.
