If you’ve followed Gift of Curiosity for any length of time, you have likely noticed that I really enjoy engaging children in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) experiences.
So when I was offered the chance to review a new children’s book that celebrates both science and art as complementary subjects, I jumped at the chance.
Georgia’s Terrific, Colorific Experiment by Zoe Perisco is the gorgeously illustrated tale of a young scientist-in-the-making named Georgia. Although Georgia’s entire family is made up of talented artists, she dreams of the cosmos, studies the cells of plants and animals, and reads up on Marie Curie and Galileo Galilei.
One day, Georgia decides to create her own scientific experiment. Her family members offer to help. But because they are artists, Georgia rejects their ideas. Eventually, everyone feels bad and Georgia storms out to work on her own.
After some experimentation and reflection, Georgia eventually realizes that science isn’t just numbers and measurements; it can be a work of art too.
I found this to be a fantastic picture book for any home or classroom where STEAM education is valued. I love how this book can spark conversations about the value in subjects that are both artistic and scientific.
And right now I’m giving five lucky people a chance to win their own copy of Georgia’s Terrific, Colorific Experiment!
