Publishers Weekly Explore Poetry! With 25 Great Projects Over five chapters, Diehn describes poetic forms like limerick, haiku, and acrostic; explores literary techniques, such as personification and exaggeration; and finds connections between poetry, music, and math. Projects include creating a poetry journal and writing ideas on rocks to combat writer's block. Stone's cartoons, which star a fox dressed like a Beat poet and a Shakespearean bear, make for a lively layout, while helping target the book at younger readers and poets-to-be.

Science Books and Films +: Recommended Technology: Cool Women Who Code highlights three women that have contributed to technology in STEM and is an excellent book for young girls. The inspirational stories of these successful women in STEM are the perfect introduction to the careers and contributions in technology for young readers. Critical thinking questions are provided throughout the text to further thinking, along with inspirational quotes of females in STEM professions. The text also provides "try it out" boxes which encourages readers to engage in hands-on activities, for example providing links to websites for coding, or by following QR codes that can be accessed by a QR code reader app (additional links are provided in the resource section in the back). This is a much needed book for our time for young readers to be inspired by strong females in the world of STEM, and recommended for both boys and girls.

--D.B. Johnson, author of Magritte's Marvelous Hatand Henry Hikes to Fitchburg

"With a light touch and kid-friendly questions, Andi Diehn leads the reader to a more nuanced understanding of their world and the science behind it, from being 'forced to clean your room, ' to the force gravity exerts when you jump from a tree ('Don't jump out of trees!' Ms. Diehn warns)."

--Jess Keating, author of Pink is for Blobfish: Discovering the World's Perfectly Pink Animals and Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean's Most Fearless Scientist

"With lively illustrations and conversational, upbeat text, this series shines!"
