It is hard to find good children’s poetry about science, as most scientists do not write poems, and most poets do not do experiments. John Scieszka and Lane Smith’s Science Verse includes poems designed to make science fun for kids, and to make poetry fun as well.
Scieszka, who has a cult following for his book “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales,” has a gift for creating verse that engages kids in both elementary and middle school.
Science poems covers topics from the future of the star to the emotional life of the amoeba. The book features a CD of the two authors reading the poems as well.
