Trevor wants to figure out a way to make the bullies look like they aren't so strong. He learns about the concept of levers and is able to figure out a way where the bullies can't lift him up on a seesaw. This can be used when introducing levers, but I feel like the concept is not presented as clearly as it could have been.

Bullies land on the playground that Trevor and his friends hang out on, initially they get kicked off by the bigger kids, but eventually Trevor uses science to beat the bullies at their own game. I really liked this story because it hit on to a major issue, bullies and also incorporated science into the solution, and problem solving skills. I would suggest this book for K-3.
