Books: Science Verse

Books: Science Verse

posted in Books |

Science Verse is a wonderfully nerdy book.  It mostly goes over the kid’s heads at this point, but makes Zach and I giggle every time we read it.  Not only does it have, obviously, a lot of science references, but it puts it on the framework of classic poems and nursery rhymes, so it has that wonderful rhythm that is great for language development, and it exposes them to a higher level of vocabulary than typical kid’s books.  They did “get” the nursery rhyme references and the one based off of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and enjoyed them.  It has been requested every night since we got it from the library and it will go on our wish list.

  • We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. — Martin Luther King Jr
