Such a great way to present science to young readers. I look forward to more books featuring this spunky kid-scientist!
Sandy Brehl
A very straightforward explanation of ways to understand and confirm for ourselves that the earth really is truly round. Simple enough for younger readers, but ideal for science students at a transition stage, ones learning to use various digital and high tech tools can see the benefits of careful analysis and reasoning and observation using simple human processes.
This is a good addition to any commentary or discussion of VERIFYING statements of supposed "fact", and relying on our own

Cannot wait to share this with my 3rd grade teachers. They just finished Me on the Map activities.
The inclusion of a lunar eclipse is perfect for a segue into their science unit on the moon. Large size is perfect for large group read aloud. Just right length, use of illustrations, and bit of humor. I would like to read this to grades 1-2 before we read Sun: One in a Billion and Earth by McAnulty.

A clear and engaging STEM book that will absorb kids and be useful in the classroom. Charming illustrations and a lively young guide lead the reader through the scientific, observational ways to test the roundness of the earth, encouraging readers to look for other truths taken for granted and look to understand their functioning. Charming illustrations are clear and lively.

I know that books about the roundness of the earth have existed before the internet got brain damage and people started believing the whole flat earth thing, but reading this, I got the feeling that those dummies are the reason this book was written. And that's sad.

Any picture book where I find myself saying, "Huh...I never thought of it that way," is a good picture book. Really enjoyed this book.

Simple explanation for how we know the world is round. Elementary readers can easily follow the text and information provided. Some light notes of humor throughout.
