Elinor Wonders Why: Forest Giants is a fun and engaging story for primary school readers with lots of science information in an accessible and easy to understand form. Released 6th Sept. 2022 by Kids Can Press, it's 40 pages and is available in hardcover and ebook formats. 

This is a new series of books based on, and featuring characters from the animated PBS kids series Elinor Wonders Why produced by SHOE ink. The books are colorful and fully illustrated. Science concepts and vocabulary are explained in context and also in well written and understandable sidebars. In this volume, Elinor and her classmates learn about and visit a giant sequoia forest and learn about the giant trees they find there.

The language and art are appealing. The concepts are presented well and cover some surprisingly diverse and complex concepts in an age appropriate manner. 

Five stars. This would be a great selection for public or school library acquisition as well as for home use. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

Elinor is inquisitive and wonders about things.  The school is going on a field trip.
KidsCanPress and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

The variety of kids find themselves in a forest with big trees.  But the teacher takes them further in and the trees get bigger and bigger.  They are sequoia's and grow very big.  They learn a good lesson about the trees.  The book has little facts about the trees in the book.

It was fun to read.

I was approved to review this on September 7th however the archive date was September 6th so there was no way for me to download the digital ARC in order to review it.
