IF: Save - Vinnie Volcano: Quirkles Science Experiments For Kids




This is for the Illustration Friday "Save" topic. These are a couple spreads from the "Vinnie Volcano" book that is a part of The Quirkles series. In these spreads Vinnie Volcano finds and saves his friends Victor Vet, Valerie Rabbit, and Venessa Squirrel from the hot violent lava pit.

The Quirkles books are an educational series that offer a fresh new way to integrate literacy and science at school or at home. Each book is full of vocabulary builders, character education lessons, and two related science experiments that allow for hands on activities, helping to reinforce the topics that were just read. The series was created by teachers, and each story teaches/reinforces the phonetic sounds that serve as the building blocks for reading, while also making science--earth, physical, and life--fun to learn. >> Quirkles science experiments for kids
