Custom Science Themed Gift Basket
Being so close to JPL we know a lot of science families. Why not get a young scientist started early on their science knowledge? Some examples of books we love to include in this basket are the Baby Loves Science Series including Quarks, Aerospace Engineering, Thermodynamics, and Quantum Physics. Other great book options are Our Solar System board book and the Curious Kids Science Book.
This delightful family read aloud skillfully weaves empathy, compassion and family into a beautifully realized story – universal and timeless – I dare say a new classic, in the mold of Charlotte’s Web (without the talking animals). Ten-year old Louie is trying his best to save a mini-donkey, he named Winston, who was born prematurely and whose mother died giving birth. Louie’s track record is not so good at keeping animals in his care alive, but he has faith in Winslow and gives him everything he has – most especially his love. Louie is sure Winslow will survive, and uses his plight as connection to his older brother Gus’ absence serving in the army. Strong, fully developed characters come to life in Creech’s vividly, and deceptively short novel which will stay with you long after the satisfying last page. - Maureen
