Synopsis

Bill Nye the Science Guy meets the Magic School Bus in this new STEM-based picture book series from the Emmy Award-winning host of PBS’s Design Squad and Design Squad Nation, Nate Ball. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Ever stop to smell the roses and wonder how they got there? Ever think about how tadpoles become frogs and how caterpillars become butterflies? Or want to know how they’re all connected?

Follow Nate and his team of plucky scientists as they morph into tiny seeds, slippery tadpoles, and fuzzy caterpillars to learn about the life cycle.

While on this adventure, learn all about how plants make food from the sun, why some animals transform as they mature, and what truly defines a living thing in this brand-new adventure from everyone’s favorite fun-loving scientist and Emmy Award–winning PBS star, Nate Ball.

Featuring vibrant illustrations by Wes Hargis and a lively and a lovable cast of characters, the Let’s Investigate with Nate books align to grade-appropriate state-level learning standards and curriculum. With sidebars and charts and graphs and interactive elements—including a Do It Yourself experiment at the back of the book—The Life Cycle takes young readers on an adventure in learning and makes learning an adventure!
