Kids’ Club Review by Eve: The magic school bus inside the Earth

The magic school bus inside the EarthThe magic school bus inside the Earth, by Joanna Cole ; illustrated by Bruce Degen

This book is about an adventure. And in that adventure they go inside the earth. The thing I do not like about it, is that it has too many speech bubbles. And they also go shooting out of a volcano. The volcano also erupts. And in some scenes, ms. Frizzle and the school bus change.

Kids’ Club Review by Lauren: STEM lab : 25 super cool projects : build, invent, create, discover

Syndetics book coverSTEM lab : 25 super cool projects : build, invent, create, discover / Jack Challoner.

STEM Lab was a good book if you like experimenting with stuff. I made the Spaghetti Tower which stayed up for a while. There are other things I would like to try in this book. I would recommend it to people who like trying new things, and if it seems too difficult, get an adult to help you.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: the girl who drew butterflies: how Maria Merian’s art changed science

Syndetics book coverThe girl who drew butterflies : how Maria Merian’s art changed science / Joyce Sidman.

Back in the 17th century, it was really hard for a woman to succeed. This was not the case for Maria Merian who was considered to be the first ecologist. Maria was really talented at drawing bugs and her work documented the life of butterflies. I am not a huge fan of non-fiction books but this was really interesting and the book had beautiful illustrations.

This is an interesting non-fiction book about an amazing person called Maria Merian who drew bugs from a young age. this is about her life and her contribution to science. She was amazing. I am a huge fan of this book as it is fascinating how a woman back then managed to achieve so much.
