Sunlight, Skyscrapers, and Soda Pop: The Wherever-You-Look Science Book

Where can you find science? All around you! Children can learn the science behind everyday activities with Sunlight, Skyscrapers, and Soda Pop. Follow Sally and Sammy, the cartoon siblings in this story as they discover science in the kitchen, at the park, in the bathroom, at a friend’s house … everywhere! Every time they make a discovery, they stop to do a science activity that you and your children can do together. Sally and Sammy model how to do each activity with illustrations and clearly written instructions. After reading the story and doing the activities, you can take part in a science search challenge! Challenges and challenge answers are listed at the back of the book, where you’ll also find explanations for each science activity.
