The intrepid science squirrels are back in the full-color picture book Newton and Curie Take Flight!, a fun adventure from the bestselling creator behind Library Mouse.
When curious squirrel Curie notices a baby bird learning to fly for the first time, she can’t wait to try too! But everyone tells her that squirrels can’t fly. Determined, Curie decides to conduct her own experiment with the help of her big brother, Newton. Can they find a way to soar in the sky?
Gently exploring the science of flight with simple, kid-friendly explanations of topics including gravity, air currents, air pressure, and lift, this light introduction to the principles of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) from bestselling author-illustrator Daniel Kirk depicts an inquisitive and resourceful sibling team who solve real-life problems together—and have a lot of fun along the way!
