Oscar and the Bird
Do your kids ever ask you questions that you know the answer to but struggle to explain in an articulate kid-friendly way? For example, “Mom, what is electricity?” I issued a rambling explanation of Ben Franklin’s kite and key, threw in a few bullet points on power lines, light bulbs, and a few facts about Thomas Edison. I was met with a glazed over expression and a disinterested shrug—NOT my best synopsis.
Thankfully, there’s a book for that! This cute story explains electricity in all kinds of ways with colorful pictures and a cute and clever pair of narrators.
