Pirate, Viking and Scientist

Reviewed by:

Scientist’s friends, Pirate and Viking do not like each other, and they’re ruining his birthday party. What is a scientist to do – use the scientific method to solve his problem. Several hypothesis are proposed, experiments set up and tested without getting satisfactory results, in other words Pirate and Viking end up in a big fight. Finally his experiment is successful and all three friends can have a great time.

The bold humorous illustrations and lively verbs and adjectives make this a great read-aloud. Whether introducing the scientific method, problem solving, or discussing friendship or perseverance this will be enjoyed by everyone.
