Annie the Scientist is a chapter book for upper elementary school readers that follows one year in the life of a group of children and their new friend, Annie. Annie is different from the other kids; she is a bit aloof, and tells the other children that she is a ‘scientist.’ At first, the children are naturally skeptical of Annie’s claim, but Annie slowly gains their confidence by performing one amazing scientific feat after another. By the end of the year, despite their initial doubts, the children are forced to reevaluate their opinions of Annie. Maybe a kid really can be a scientist after all! Annie the Scientist is simply packed with fun scientific facts. It also includes supplementary material in the back for teachers/parents, an author/illustrator bio, and a glossary.
