LIBBY LOVES SCIENCE is a cute picture book that brings a love of science to all the fun of ice cream and other experiments. Science is made really tangible through Libby, who talks about the need to measure ingredients precisely and test your hypotheses. Scientists do make the best bakers afterall! Libby loves science so much that she volunteers to help design her class's booth about science at the fair, and the prize for the winni

This STEM-centric story includes actual science experiments for kids to try as Libby and her friends run their class science booth at the school festival. Hand this to readers who love stories and science equally or anywhere you're trying to highlight girls' excitement in science.

Libby and her friends love science - especially experiments. They offer to run the class booth at the annual school fair. I love that Derting included the instructions for doing the various experiments as part of the story. Readers (with parent permission) can recreate these experiments and celebrate science too.
The “Loves Science” series grew earlier this summer when Libby Loves Science was published in June. Libby also loves science, but rather than zoology, her passion lies in chemistry (mostly through cooking!). She loves to mix, pour, measure, and stir to see what she can create. As a member of the science club, Libby and her friends Finn and Rosa volunteer to run the science booth at the school’s fall festival. They set up materials needed for students to run three fun experiments (giant bubbles, ...more

I would recommend this book for a read aloud not only to instill a love of learning and science into children but also to show them how to persevere through difficult times and how to problem solve. When Libby's booth was getting little attention from the fair goers, she decided to begin conducting the experiments herself in hopes that it would draw peoples attention their way, and the was right! When people began to see the experiments her booth became crowded quickly. Libby was able to problem ...more

the genre of Libby Loves Science childrens's literature. In this book Libby and her friends are put in charge of a science booth. I like how the character are doodled. This book is very educational it is something I would suggest this book to kids. I like this because I want my kids to learn new things. This book has no awards.

Libby loves science! In this STEM-themed picture book, a companion to the popular Cece Loves Science, Libby and her friends are put in charge of the science booth at their school fair. There's only one problem: No one is visiting their booth! Does everyone think science is boring?

Note: Includes projects.

I love this series by Kimberly Derting. It's a great book to read to kids who love science and even those who don't, because it will help them realize that science isn't boring. I love the activities included throughout the book that kids and adults can do at home. The glossary is also very nice for the "older" kids who want to learn more.

From the author of Cece loves science and Cece loves science and adventure, Libby loves science is a great addition to this collection. Diverse characters, easily understandable science for younger readers, and vibrant pages featuring several science experiments to try at home, makes this an enjoyable read for younger children. I can't wait to see what more this author writes!

A fun introduction to chemistry and some kid-friendly experiments (with adult supervision) are sure to peak the interest of kids who enjoy science. Recipes for making giant bubbles, rainbow slime, and more are shared in a colorful and informative way. Perfect addition to classroom or home-school science curriculum for the youngest kids.

Fun story about science. Libby and her friends are going to head the school science booth at the fair. But nobody wants to stop by.... what can they do? Included are kid-friendly science experiments and lots of information about science, experimenting, making mistakes and messes, and giving it your all!
It's great to see more and more characters of color in picture books that aren't specifically about people of color. Plus girls and sciences together! Hooray! More, please!
