Curious Cassie Book Series
- Do you know any 6-10-year-old kids who love reading chapter books?
- Did you wonder why there aren’t enough early reader chapter books drawing inspiration from the greatest scientists of the past to inspire scientists of the future?
- Are you concerned that kids are losing themselves in the one-way interaction devices & losing the art of being curious?
As mothers of young kids, Jaya Jha and Suneeta Mall asked themselves similar questions and embarked on their “mum’s projects” – writing a series of “Curious Cassie” books.
Curious Cassie is a set of early reader books telling fascinating tales about the discoveries of our scientists to spark curiosity and courage to pursue the quests. Every book in this series is devoted to a scientist whose discoveries are canvassed through fun and engaging conversations led by Cassie and her family.
The discoveries led by the scientists of our past and present continue to inspire us. These folks are curious and passionate about their pursuit. They are also fearless in asking questions. In fact, Albert Einstein, one of the great scientists of all time, once said, “I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious”.
What’s in this book
