Picture book from The Read-Aloud Handbook. Combines fairy tale with science! Briar Rose (Sleeping Beauty) is kissed and awoken by Daniel Bernoulli (an actual scientist). Features two boys who are always bored, would be a good book to share with kids who claim to be "bored."

This was a fun twist on Sleeping Beauty and I liked the weaving in of a real historical figure. Cute story.

A little history, a little science, and a lot of imagination. A cute, short book that will engage younger kids.

Detailed illustrations, scientific principles, and a an actual inventor from history make this picture book an interesting take on the sleeping beauty story.
