Product Details


“Min is back and still solving problems like a pro. . . . This pachyderm’s predilection for problem solving will delight readers who will want to try this for themselves. Sure to be popular for STEM lessons and a good addition for most collections.”—School Library Journal

“Min, the ingenious, intrepid little pachyderm protagonist of the early reader 3-2-1-Go, is back to save the day with a new invention. The social dynamics are the same: Min, whose bright pink bow embodies her indomitable energy, wants to play with older elephants Ann and Bess, but they view Min as a pest at best. (Readers with older, too-cool-for-you siblings will instantly identify.) . . . McCully (Caroline’s Comets) breaks down Min’s problem solving into digestible, replicable parts and acknowledges that every great solution takes hard work. It’s a nifty lesson in both science and tenacity . . . “—Publishers Weekly

“This early reader has a resourceful elephant girl at its center. . . . the controlled text and lively watercolor illustrations will engage young readers learning to independently decode text and just might inspire some to build their own machines, too. STEAM-y early-reader fun.”—Kirkus Reviews
