Who wanted to live in outer space when they were a kid?
I think we all have dreams of what outer space would be like. Lately, this has been a thing with my 10-year old son…space, science and anything graphic novel related. So when you combine his love of STEM and comic books – you get one awesome new Disney Book Group series that’s literally out-of-this-world. If you need a fun STEM kids activity idea, make these Easy Straw Rockets with FREE Printable and check out why we love the new Sanity & Tallulah graphic novel series for my science-loving reader.
Ready to blast off!
Science + Graphic Novel = AWESOME Read
Doesn’t Disney Books have some of the most amazing and interesting kids book titles? I admit, it’s getting harder and harder to impress a 10-year old with any books lately. But when you have a mad science graphic novel set in space? It’s seriously a dream come true for this boy. This book is full of exciting science terms and full graphic novel illustrations on every page to hold his attention. I’ve never seen him dive so deep into an educational book before!
About Sanity & Tallulah from Disney Books Group
Sanity & Tallulah is the first of a three-book graphic novel series (What?! There’s two more?! YESSSSS!) from author Molly Brooks. In this funny and smart science fiction graphic novel, best friends Sanity and Tallulah must find their furry, adorable, and totally illegal science experiment when she escapes in the space station they call home.
Chock-full of imaginative biology, tech, and engineering references, Sanity & Tallulah encourages experimentation and problem solving. This series is perfect for kids who love science, as well as parents and teachers clamoring for more STEM titles.
