    I’ve had a copy of Kimberly Derting, Shelli R. Johannes, and Vashti Harrison’s picture book Cece Loves Science sitting by my desk at work for a few weeks now. Whenever anyone sees the title, they smile and ask 1) if I love science, and/or 2) if I know the authors (Cece is one of my nicknames). That in turn makes *me* smile, and the circle is complete.

Whenever anyone sees the title, they smile and ask 1) if I love science, and/or 2) if I know the authors (Cece is one of my nicknames). That in turn makes *me* smile, and the circle is complete. I’ve found that the combination of cute cover and title make this book nearly irresistible for adults to page through, and I think kids will enjoy it as well. Cece loves to ask questions about the world, to find out how and why things work. When her teacher asks students to try an experiment and record their results, Cece and her friend Isaac brainstorm ideas. Are bears ticklish? Do pigs know that they are smelly? But eventually Cece and Isaac decide to test if animals eat vegetables, and experiment on Cece’s family dog Einstein. Through the process Cece and Isaac learn about observing, asking the right questions, thinking outside the box, and never giving up. Cece Loves Science is a charming, informative picture book featuring a curious scientist-in-training as main character. Cece's questions, frustrations and discoveries will please teachers, librarians, parents and kids (especially those learning about the scientific method for the first time). This title is a great candidate to read aloud during science- and STEM-related classroom units. Cece’s teacher Ms. Curie assigns a project worksheet that is very similar to ones found in most science lesson plans, and the folks at HarperCollins have created a fun tie-in activity kit for download as well. A couple of other things that stand out: Cece is biracial girl from a blended family, and it’s great to read about her and her friend Isaac carrying out their experiments creatively in a supportive family environment. I also appreciated the final page of the book, which is a glossary of terms, or “Cece’s Science Facts” – this will prompt further interest in famous scientists and branches of science. Finally, I think this would be a fun read-aloud book or even a good candidate to act out – there’s dialogue assigned to each character that would be ideal for doing voices with. Let’s talk about Vashti Harrison’s art! Harrison’s illustrations were created in a digital medium, and the effect overall is colorful and soft (not line-heavy) – with cute human figures and the feel of a well-drawn animated short. In addition, the book design pops – I loved the endpapers and the softer crayon-drawn figures on some pages that represented Cece’s internal thoughts. Great art to match a good book, in other words! In all, Cece Loves Science is a fun science-laden adventure that will appeal to 5-8 year olds and pair well with Izzy Gizmo and Ada Twist, Scientist. Recommended for: parents, teachers, and librarians looking to beef up their STEAM- and STEM-related libraries for kids, and any child that likes to ask “How?” “Why?” and “What if?”

    While I appreciate the premise of this book, I found it just a little basic and kind of young. Cece loves science! And she loves her teacher, Ms. Curie. When the teacher assigns the class a project to do in pairs, Cece and her friend Isaac come up with a question and then use the scientific method to answer it. I like that this book demonstrates the scientific method in an easy-to-understand way. The kids' experiments with trying to get the dog to eat his vegetables are kind of amusing, too.

What really brought up this book's rating for me, though, are Vashti Harrison's adorable illustrations. I first came across her work in her duo of books featuring strong women from history. The style is a little different here, but no less cute. The kids and the dog, as well as Cece's treehouse, are drawn in a colourful, animated way that's likely to appeal to young readers. It's nice to see a book about a girl so interested in science. I would recommend it; even though it read kind of young for me, I'm sure kids will enjoy it.

    Fun and informative picture book about a boy and girl team of friends who are budding scientists. They work on a science project for school, which demonstrates the scientific method. The question they investigate is whether or not the girl's dog will eat vegetables. The digital art is warm, colorful, and rather appealing. Especially love the girl's treehouse laboratory. Glossary of scientific terms included in the back of the book.

    Cece has a lot of curiosity about the world, and her teacher tells her she would make a great scientist. Cece and her friend Isaac decide to perform a scientific experiment to find out if her dog likes vegetables. A nice introduction to the scientific method, with an emphasis on girls in science.

In the book, Cece's love of science and founding out new information is fostered by her science teacher who allows her to ask questions and develop an experiment with a partner. As a teacher, I would use this book as a way to introduce a new science experiment. For example, if the class is going to start a unit on pollution. We would read this book, discuss what we read and allow the students the time to ask questions about the process. Then, they would be given the assignment of developing a way to reduce pollution in their neighborhood. This book would show them the process of coming up with a question, doing basic research and evaluation and then redefining their experiment. This is just one basic example. This book has a wealth of possibilities and could really be used multiple times a year for multiple subjects. Cece shows a passion for learning and for having fun while learning that many students will find relevant as they try to find subjects that interest them. On a side note, the author does an excellent job of dispelling many stereotypes. Cece is an African-American female who is very interested in STEM. Getting females and minorities interested in STEM is an important topic and the book is able to have a main protagonist that is female and enjoys what she is working on.

Through the process Cece and Isaac learn about observing, asking the right questions, thinking outside the box, and never giving up! This book is a nice introduction to the scientific method. The book’s content connects to the method and experimenting in an easier and more understandable language to their young audience. What’s more important is that the book does show the frustrations when feeling stagnate in an experiment, rather than just an easy discovery. Young readers may even see exactly and follow how the experiment was written down through the character’s notes (this may be used as a template in the classroom setting)! The book also contains an awesome glossary for students to utilize and refer to. This would be a great read-aloud source for: teachers, librarians, and parents, who are introducing the scientific method for the first time. They will especially be introduced to asking more: how, why, and what if’s. Other things I personally liked: Vashti Harrison’s illustrations! Created in a digital medium, she portrayed diversity in all characters. The main character, as a biracial girl, also shown in a supportive environment. providing an emphasis on females in science. CeCe loves science, and this book portrays the qualities necessary to become a scientist. Other things I was personally concerned with: A little bit concern some of the experimental foods (ketchup and bacon) shown fed to the dog. Foods rich in fat, like bacon, can lead to the disease pancreatitis in dogs. Once a dog has developed pancreatitis, their pancreas' become inflamed and stop functioning correctly. This leads to all sorts of problems with digestion and nutrient absorption. I just hope children won’t try to experiment and start feeding their dogs anything and everything!

    The first book in the series, Cece Loves Science, features Cece, a spunky young scientist with her own lab where she works out answers to questions such as “Why?”, “How?”, and “What if?” Tasked by her teacher to pick a scientific question to investigate, Cece and her best friend, Isaac, decide to study in the field of zoology, eventually landing on “Do dogs eat vegetables?” As they work through the scientific process of building their experiment and coming to a conclusion, Harrion’s illustration The first book in the series, Cece Loves Science, features Cece, a spunky young scientist with her own lab where she works out answers to questions such as “Why?”, “How?”, and “What if?” Tasked by her teacher to pick a scientific question to investigate, Cece and her best friend, Isaac, decide to study in the field of zoology, eventually landing on “Do dogs eat vegetables?” As they work through the scientific process of building their experiment and coming to a conclusion, Harrion’s illustrations show their progress on “Ms. Curie’s Science Project Worksheet,” which introduces readers to terms like observations, variables, and data. Budding scientists will delight in the fact that Cece’s teacher is named Ms. Curie and her dog is Einstein (Derting and Johannes also include Caroline Herschel, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, and Jane Goodall in the story if you need more conversation starters about scientists and their accomplishments). Back matter includes a spread of “Cece’s Science Facts,” a glossary of scientific terms and people presented throughout the story. The whole series is wonderfully diverse, featuring interracial families, highlighting women in science, and celebrating friendships between boys and girls. My girls love the stories themselves, and I am delighted by how much science they learn (without even realizing it) and are inspired to do themselves (we’ve got grand plans to do all 4 experiments outlined in Libby Loves Science over the next few weeks). Though Derting is an accomplished author, she did major in biology, and her deep understanding of scientific processes shines in each book.

My story time audience was a bit squirmy through this long story too—but they made it, and they made it through Two Problems for Sophia on the same sitting. Assigned to complete a research project, Cece with her friend and assigned research partner Isaac set out to experiment on Cece’s dog Einstein to see if dogs eat vegetables. They try offering Einstein vegetables in various forms, which he won’t eat, causing Cece to question her credentials as a scientist, but she persists, and eventually they do find a way to get Einstein to eat veggies. I’m not sure about the ethical implications of trying to get your family dog to eat foods outside of his normal diet without consulting a veterinarian first—I don’t recommend doing it at home—but I have known dogs who like carrots, so I’m fairly sure that this experiment won’t harm Einstein. The book ends with a glossary of science terms and scientists.

    This book is a longer picture book that illustrates the scientific method. The main character is a young girl named Cece, who is multi-racial and lives in a diverse community.

They decide to use Cece's dog as a subject, trying to see if he will ever eat his vegetables. The scientific method comes in as they observe the current situation, introduce variables, discuss the results, and change the variables. There is also a running lab report throughout the book keeping track of their findings. This is a fun way to introduce an important but often dry topic. Others have mentioned that children should not be encouraged to experiment on their pet, which is true. However I see this book being used in an elementary school classroom, where the experiments that follow are highly unlikely to involve animals. And of course, the teacher can address that issue with the students as well. The illustrations are vibrant and full of energy, and the multicultural classroom is beautiful to behold.

    Cece Loves Science is a story of a bright young girl who never stop asking herself "why?" She always have an idea about all the things in the world for example, she ask herself questions like, "Can pig smell if they are stinky?" it's always those questions that requires data and observation. One day, for her science class, Cece's teacher wanted them to conduct an experiment about the things they have interest on. During supper, Cece's pet dog ate everything on her plate besides vegetables. That' Cece Loves Science is a story of a bright young girl who never stop asking herself "why?"

One day, for her science class, Cece's teacher wanted them to conduct an experiment about the things they have interest on. During supper, Cece's pet dog ate everything on her plate besides vegetables. That's when she thought about an idea that she wanted to prove. She asked herself whether dogs eat vegetables. After all the trial and errors, Cece and her friend were satisfied with their findings. I love stories like this. Where children always ask questions about anything; it makes me happy to see/hear that they are willing to learn. We know that kids are super curious about all the things they see or hear that's why most of the time, they always asks adults about their findings. I feel like as an adult, it is our responsibility to explain these things clearly to children so they can have a better understanding at an early age. Also, we never know whether these things are the ones they are passionate about.

Harrison’s illustrations were fun and colorful. They seemed to melt into the pages. This book is definitely a keeper and a real asset to science teachers in elementary school. It could be used as an introduction to the scientific method. The text breaks down the steps simply and in a manner that could be appreciated by a child. The experiment is fun and could get the students’ creative juices flowing. Derting and Johannes make science fun again.

    Summary: This book is about Cece, Cece loves science. Cece and her friend have to do a science project for school. They have to brainstorm ideas. Then Cece comes up with a scientific question. Does her dog, Einstein, eat vegetables. Cece and her friend try all combinations to see if they can trick Einstein into eating the vegetables but he doesn't. Then, Einstein tries to eat Cece's bananas in her banana split at dinner.

Einstein seems to really like bananas so Cece and her friend blend up bananas and vegetables and Einstein eats them. Cece can conclude her research. She also concludes that science isn't always about finding the right answer right away but having fun in the process. Age appropriate: K-3rd Review: This book does a great job of introducing the scientific process to students. This book represents women in science both through Cece, her science teacher, and some of the scientists they are learning about in class.

    Cece loves asking questions which makes her science teacher's project perfect for her and her friend because science is all about asking questions and testing ideas. Definitely more for reading to the 5+ crowd than to younger picture book listeners, though some 4 year olds might be enthralled as well.

    This book is adorable! Cece is a curious kid who has an amazing treehouse lab. Her teacher, Ms. Curie, gives an assignment, and Cece partners up with her best friend Isaac to conduct an investigation on her dog Einstein. For teachers, it has wonderful Science content connections to the scientific method and investigating. Back matter provides definitions and information about famous scientists. Gorgeous, fun illustrations with so much to see!

    Cece loves to ask questions, which makes her the perfect scientist. // I didn’t think I would love this book as much as I did and what pushed it over the top was the subtle way they used the story to show the scientific method. Through a school project, Cece has to investigate a question. She (and her partner) do all the steps that answer great science problems-only hers was small and age appropriate. I highly recommend this book for your home library.

    A really cute and empowering book for girls (and boys!) who may be interested in pursuing science. Lots of information and references with a glossary at the back. Beautiful, rich illustrations with a multi-ethnic protagonist. Long for a picture book, so probably only for older readers. Would make a fun classroom read-aloud for middle-to-upper-elementary kids embarking on science projects.
