This month the award goes to a book that makes science fun: Belches, Burps and Farts, Oh My! written by Artie Bennett and illustrated by Pranas T. Naujokaitis.
True to its title, the book delves into the word of gas, covering the expulsions of many animals (humans included) and providing a litany of fascinating facts in the form of lyrical poetry:
Snakes “cut one” to drive away
A predator in search of prey.
Fish fart to communicate.
The bubbles help them congregate.
Lonely beetles need a mate.
Tooting draws a candidate!
A chemical within each fart
Helps to win a beetle’s heart!
Combine these catchy science rhymes with fun illustrations and it’s one fun book!
