Ms Pearl Makes a Discovery

2017 NYC Big Book Award Distinguished Favorite for Children's Literature

Ms. Pearl is a super intelligent Scientist who enjoys performing experiments in her laboratory. She works at a Nature Park where she engages with dynamic animal friends – Sean the Squirrel, Teddy the Turtle, Elle the Elephant, Alex the Alligator, and Max the Monkey – each having a unique talent in the STEM subjects. Together they use their skills and wit to highlight STEM in a fun and informative manner.  

Readers will witness the characters exercise problem solving skills, introduce science concepts, and discuss various scientific terminology during their interactions in Ms. Pearl’s laboratory. Readers will learn about chemical reactions, gaseous state of matter, and working together as a team. Children will also become inspired to recreate the kid-friendly experiments performed in the book using the optional activity kit. 

Delightfully informative children's book with an optimistic feel

Author Visit / Book Fair

Author visits encourage literacy and motivate students to get excited about learning.  Although it's great to host authors at your library or school, it's not always possible. Author visits may also be conducted virtually with any location within the U.S.   Contact Young Scholars for more information regarding Author visits or book fairs.
