Melinda Long Launch party
December 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
It’s a Launch Party! My first chapter book, ART SMART, SCIENCE DETECTIVE: THE CASE OF THE SLIDING SPACESHIP.
Come join the fun and get autographed copies! This makes a great Christmas gift for kids 1st – 5th grade.
When Art and his friends—Robbie, Jason, and Amy—have a sleepover, they decide to use Art’s telescope for some stargazing. They are shocked to see a purple spaceship hurtling toward Earth.
When the local police don’t seem concerned about Art’s report, the group decides to apply their knowledge of science and critical thinking skills to prepare for the impending attack. They need a plan—and fast!
What transpires as they gear up for the spaceship’s arrival will amuse and educate. Art Smart, Science Detective will appeal to budding scientists and even reluctant young readers as it answers burning questions such as “How close is science fiction to real life?” and “Can peanut butter really keep your brain safe from an alien assault?” This entertaining journey through the science of the sky is easily incorporated into middle-grade STEM/STEAM classrooms.
