Ben and Zoe aren’t your typical middle schoolers. Instead of spending their days at school and hanging out with their friends, these twins travel all around the world working for their uncle’s elite environmental organization, WILD and saving animals in danger and protect the environment. No matter how dangerous the mission, no matter what’s at stake, Ben and Zoe will do whatever it takes to rescue at-risk animals. And they don’t work alone: their uncle, the leader of the WILD organization, creates amazing gadgets to help them in their work. There are eight books in the Wild Rescue series, sure to charm science-minded kids!

“. . . gadgets and some clever investigating help Zoe and Ben to save the day. . . . Chances are, animal lovers will enjoy these books.”—School Library Journal

Zeke Meeks vs the Stinkin’ Science Fair
by D. L. Green

Picture Window Books, 2012

In honor of our first Capstone Fiction post on STEM Friday, I wanted to give you a taste of one of the fun ways we’re addressing STEM through fiction. Meet one of our favorite new characters, Zeke Meeks! In this book, he’s taking part in a science fair at school. The book is filled with fun, basic science experiments that readers will love. Plus, there’s an experiment in the back of the book, and you can download an activity kit from CapstoneKids that includes details on an ice-cream-making experiment.

Funny, realistic, and packed with humor, Zeke will be a huge hit among second-to-fourth graders. (And many adults.)

Enjoy!
