First time in paperback!
Acadia Greene wants answers. Who keeps stealing the blueberries that ripen on the bushes? Why is her hair curly? Why does the sun wake her so early in the summer? Why does the tide submerge her sandcastles?
Acadia doesn’t mean to do science, but she has these questions, and her parents refuse to simply give her the answers. “Conduct an experiment,” they tell her. “Use the scientific method.” So Acadia makes hypotheses, designs experiments, analyzes data, and draws conclusions. Acadia does science.
"An excellent series that will help its audience look at the world in a new way." (Foreword Reviews)
