The Quest to Digest by Mary Corcoran

A playful picture book that introduces STEAM readers to the science of the human digestive system. Humorous text and colorful illustrations follow an apple's journey at each stage of digestion through the human body. Discover why mucus is so important to your body and how food particles are absorbed by the small intestine and turned into energy. Readers will also learn why we burp, vomit, and pass gas.



The Noisy Paintbox by Barb Rosenstock

Vasya Kandinsky was a proper little boy: he studied math and history, he practiced the piano, he sat up straight and was perfectly polite. And when his family sent him to art classes, they expected him to paint pretty houses and flowers--like a proper artist.

But as Vasya opened his paint box and began mixing the reds, the yellows, the blues, he heard a strange sound--the swirling colors trilled like an orchestra tuning up for a symphony! And as he grew older, he continued to hear brilliant colors singing and see vibrant sounds dancing. But was Vasya brave enough to put aside his proper still lifes and portraits and paint . . . music?



Giant by Kate Scott

Anzo is 11 years old and very, very short. Mum, Dad and his two uncles are extremely tall but they're also high achievers, obsessed with fulfilling their lifelong ambition of opening a restaurant together. Everyone has a role - but where does Anzo fit in? If only he could grow a few inches in height, then no one would be able to overlook him.

Then, overnight, Anzo starts to grow. Is life as a giant going to solve all his problems, or should he stop worrying and learn to just be himself?
