Hear ye, Hear ye!
The 2nd graders from Ms. Zapp’s class are taking over Erin Dealey’s blog.
We got to read an advanced copy of Shiho Pate’s new book, ANIMATED SCIENCE: ROCKS & MINERALS, and in honor of her (almost) Book Birthday on Oct. 18th, we are here to tell you about it.
You can see the cool book trailer here.
Shiho Pate is also the illustrator of Animated Science: PERIODIC TABLE (Scholastic).
It is a finalist in the CBC Kids’ Choice Awards. (You can vote here.)
If you like rocks you will like Shiho Pate’s book, ROCKS & MINERALS.
We LOVED the illustrations.
It is full of real facts with cartoon pictures.
We decided it is a ‘hard but FUN’ book for second graders. Ms. Zapp used it to teach us how to use the Table of Contents and then she read parts of it to us.
Ms. Zapp says thanks too:
“The students were really interested in learning about new types of minerals, and especially the minerals they had seen illustrations of on the bookmarks she gave us.”Ms. Zapp
PS One of Ms. Zapp’s students brought in a rock and a mineral today. : )
Shiho talked about her very first book, 2 Pirates + 1 Robot, in her interview with Erin Dealey here.
