    Whether you are looking for a book to start great conversations around science or just looking for a fun read aloud, I'd recommend this book. But it's fleeting and unpredictable. January 1, Robert Owens Needing a book for a read aloud today, I visited our school library.

    Jenny Offill and Nancy Carpenter—the ingenious pair that brought you 17 Things I'm Not Allowed to Do Anymore—have outdone themselves in this brilliant and outrageously funny book.

Establishing the steps of the scientific method helps in solving other problems. A typical experiment: "Question: Do dogs like to be covered in glitter? For each question she has such as "Can a person live on snow and ketchup alone?

    DeVille took a very different view, describing the 12 Rules for Life as "unbearably banal, superficial, and insidious", claiming that "the real danger in this book is its apologia for social Darwinism and bourgeois individualism covered over with a theological patina" and that "in a just world, this book would never have been published". A handful of Coover stories is probably enough for me. Tucker, how was your evening? She has lots of questions about the world and works to answer them. Hypothesis: A piece of bologna will fly like a Frisbee. I thought it was going to be about famous scientists who failed along the way to big discoveries.
