Science and art come together in this colorful and empowering picture book about a strong minded girl scientist and her artist family. 

Georgia is a creative girl from a family of artists who wants to be a scientist. She decides she has to create her own unique experiment to truly be a great scientist (the way her family are all great artists). She rebukes her family's advice, thinking science and art have to be mutually exclusive, but after many failed attempts at recreating experiments, she comes to realize that science can be a work of art.

First, I'd like to thank Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review! This is the first Children's book I have actually reviewed on my blog, and honestly I don't understand why I never did it in the beginning!

I will be honest and say that this book was good, but it wasn't my favourite children's book. Personally for me, I found that some of the dialogue was a little too advanced for most children that would be reading or listening to this story, and they might not know what it is without needing further explanation.

happy full house GIFI also felt like once Georgia found the "secret formula" the rest of the book just kind of ends. I totally get that it's meant to be short since it is for kids, but I feel like she doesn't talk about it a whole lot. What could have Georgia done to make it even better. To show the readers that she realized what was most important with becoming a great scientist.

I did love the fact that even though she was in a family full of artists, she knew which path she wanted to take and be her own person, even if that meant being the "odd one out" of the family. Georgia knew what she wanted, and even for a little kid, she was quite persistent about it!

Let's talk about the illustrations though! Those were absolutely captivating, and I found myself staring at all the details in the book, I LOVED IT! They were so beautifully created and the entire book was filled with colour, and it was so beautiful!

Overall, it was a good story, but I felt like there were some things that could be even better with the book. The characters could have had some more dialogue, and more content in the books, because it doesn't describe a whole lot.

That's all for my review, I hope you liked it!

So until the next time, Keep Reading!!
Your Graduated Bookworm! :)
