Lucy’s Lab

I have several children in our home that love to read, and I will readily admit, that I’m thrilled that they love books. To me, a love of good books is very important. The ability to sit down and spend an hour or two reading is something that I love to see our kids do and they often come to me with cool facts or things that they’ve learned – and yes, some of this information is stuff that I didn’t even know! It’s wonderful.

My favorite types of books are ones that have both a story, but also some real-life facts or lessons in them to help kids learn more about life while they read. The Lucy’s Lab series is a set of books that does this. So far, there are only a few books in the series, but we are eagerly waiting for more to hit the shelves! Lucy’s Lab books draw on STEM themes and are aligned with curriculum guidelines to bring a love of science to young readers. All of our children really enjoy science so this series naturally fits into our home very well.

The books have stories that easily capture the audience of younger children (for us, it was most enjoyed by our 9 and 11 year old kids). There’s some humor as well which makes it great for boys (especially the second book which is titled “Lucy’s Lab: Solids, Liquids, Guess Who’s Got Gas?”) haha.

The Lucy’s Lab Series by Michelle Houts are great books for kids who are eager to learn, and even for kids who are not so eager. 😉 They would make a great read-aloud chapter book and who might even inspire them to start their own labs and get out and explore their world.

    I think that the love of reading also means learning and this all means that school will be so much easier for these children who love to read. 🙂
