Review: Dream Big, Little Scientists by Michelle Schaub (giveaway)

Dream Big, Little Scientists 
By Michelle Schaub 
Illustrated by Alice Potter 

Twelve kids. A dozen bedtimes. Endless sweet ways to say goodnight with science! 

Spark curiosity and exploration with this innovative bedtime story for budding scientists that introduces eleven branches of science. From astronomy to physics to chemistry to geology, this STEM picture book will help kids get excited to explore. Includes further information about each branch of science. 


In Dream Big, Little Scientists, little readers will meet 12 diverse little scientists, each excited about a different branch of science, as they set off to sleep. 

Dream Big, Little Scientists joyously celebrates the fascinating world of science through Michelle Schaub’s soothing and fun rhyming text and Alice Potter’s engaging illustrations. Through quick, clever rhymes, Schaub briefly, yet captivatingly, touches on each cool branch of science. And, each branch is further explained in easily understood language, at the back of the book. Potter further explores the world of science with detailed, colorful illustrations of each child’s unique bedrooms, each decorated around their chosen branch of science, including portraits of famous scientists in that field. Little readers will love discovering each neat detail found in the rooms. 

Bursting with STEM goodness, lyrical text, and fun pictures, the delightful Dream Big, Little Scientists will get readers excited about science and inspire their imaginations, curiosity, and minds!
