Booklist - 04/15/2020 Joining the ranks of strong girls in STEM comes Libby, a spirited Black girl with a passion for chemistry. When her teacher announces their class will be running the science booth at the school fair—and that the most successful booth will win an ice cream party—Libby can’t wait to get involved. She and two other classmates volunteer and come up with three fun experiments for people to try at the booth: making giant bubbles, mixing fluffy slime, and launching a baking-soda-and-vinegar bottle rocket. Brightly colored artwork bubbles with Libby’s enthusiasm, even when things at the booth don’t quite go as planned. Materials lists and instructions for each experiment, plus two others, appear in the main text, giving readers an opportunity to experience the science fun themselves. While the kids have supervision and safety goggles on in the illustrations, there’s no mention of these precautions in the instructions themselves. Nevertheless, this book is a natural fit for classroom science units and home use—just be prepared for a fun but messy learning experience. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
