4 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
New York Times-bestselling authors Bill Nye the Science Guy and Gregory Mone take middle-grade readers on a scientific adventure in Book 2 of the exciting new Jack and the Geniuses series. The series combines real-world science along with a mysterious adventure that will leave kids guessing until the end, making the books ideal for STEM education. In the second installment, In the Deep Blue Sea, Jack, his genius siblings Ava and Matt, and inventor Dr. Hank Witherspoon travel to the Hawaiian island home of Ashley Hawking, a technology billionaire. Hawking and engineer Rosa Morris have built a revolutionary electricity plant that harvests energy from the deep ocean, but someone has been sabotaging the project. In their search for the culprit, Jack and crew navigate an unusual world of characters and suspects, including Hawking and her obnoxiously intelligent son, Steven; a family of surfers who accuse the billionaire of trespassing on sacred l? an ex-Navy SEAL with a fondness for cat photos; and a cigar-chomping man who calls himself the Air-Conditioning King of Hawaii. Readers will learn about the mysteries of the deep ocean, the scientific process, and the potential of green energy as Jack and his brilliant siblings use all their brainpower to survive. Integrating real science facts with humor and suspense and featuring a multiethnic cast of boy and girl characters, this engaging series is an irresistible combination for middle-grade readers. With easy-to-read language presented in a fun and accessible way, these books are great for both inquisitive kids and reluctant readers. In the Deep Blue Sea: Jack and the Geniuses Book 2 includes information about the science discussed and used to solve the mystery, as well as a cool project that kids can do at home or in the classroom. Bill Nye's brand-new talk show series for Netflix, Bill Nye Saves the World, premieres on April 21, 2017.

Must have forgotten to snap a pic of this one before I returned to the library. No complaints from the kids, but this was my least favorite of the three. #mordecaireads

Pickpick

This series good for marrying science and adventure. This time Jack and the Geniuses are solving a mystery in Hawaii. Not as much potty humor as in the first book, but the kids will definitely laugh at loud at some of it.

Book 2. Although not really necessary to read them in order, but some of the adventures from earlier are mentioned.

Joanne1 Sounds like a good one for my kids. They both love science (and toilet humour!). 2y
youngreadrshelf @Joanne1 I read the first one to my class of 4th-6th graders and they loved it so much that they asked me to buy the 2nd and 3rd one of the classroom. Those have been making the rounds! 2y

After a very busy day, I‘m going to kick back in a chair in the backyard and enjoy the lovely weather.
