Book Review #304: Pirate, Viking & Scientist #bookaday

Pirate, Viking & Scientist coverby Jared Chapman
Picture book
Interest level: K-3
Reading level: 3.0
5 out of 5 stars


This book is both a story of friendship, as well as an introduction to the scientific method. I would have to say that combo makes it one-of-a-kind! A scientist is friends with a pirate and a viking, but Pirate and Viking do not like each other. This makes for an upsetting birthday party for Scientist, whose scientific instincts kick in and help him solve this problem. This is a very fun story with great characters, colorful illustrations, and pillaging and plundering.

This book would make a fun read-aloud as a class begins to study the steps involved in the scientific method. Making STEM learning fun!!
