Sydney & Simon Series : Titles in Order

Book 3
Eager to win a chance to meet a real-life astronaut, twin mice Sydney and Simon use STEAM thinking to create the best science project about the Moon
The chance to meet astronaut Kris Kornfield is a dream come true for twins Sydney and Simon. But first they have to come up with the most creative project about the Earth’s moon. While Sydney’s work is all about the art, and Simon’s is all about the data, neither seems creative enough to win the prize. But when they put their heads together, they incorporate S.T.E.A.M. thinking (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) and come up with a winning idea.
The third installment in the Sydney & Simon series, this kid-friendly story makes science concepts accessible and exciting.
Book 2
STEAM problem-solvers and twin mice Sydney and Simon learn about the dangers of pollution—and the power of recycling—in this illustrated chapter book for young readers

Last we saw them, Sydney & Simon used science, technology, engineering, arts, and math skills to save wilting flowers in their window box. Now the twin mice are back to apply STEAM thinking to recycling!

During a class field trip to the Aquarium, Sydney is upset when she realizes that a green sea turtle has been harmed by garbage that made its way to the ocean. She must convince Simon that even if others don’t intend to litter, the garbage everyone puts in a trashcan may accidentally get swept into sewers, streams, rivers, and possibly end up in the ocean.

The twins collects data on the trash habits of their household and school and find they are all part of the problem! They need to figure out a way that their family, their neighborhood, and their school can cut down on garbage production and make better use of their discarded items.

Short chapters paired with Peter H. Reynolds’s lively illustrations will inspire readers to take a closer look at their recycling habits and implement small changes to make a big difference.
Book 1
Twin mice solve a problem using STEAM in this early chapter book for young artists, inventors, and creative thinkers—featuring illustrations from the award-winning author/illustrator of The Dot

Sydney and Simon are twin mice on a mission. They want to enter their flowers in the neighborhood flower show, but the flowers in the window box are wilting in the city heat, and the window is jammed. How are they going to get water to their blossoms so they’ll live and flourish in time for the show?

Sydney and Simon are lucky to be growing up in a curious and creative family and are encouraged to ask questions, experiment, and record their findings through writing, art, music, and video. Their mother is a scientist and their father is a poet. Their family motto is: “When the going gets tough, the creative get going.”

Utilizing the S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) philosophy of learning, this brightly illustrated story shows how an interdisciplinary studies model helps Sydney and Simon achieve their goals. In a practical, fun, and hands-on way, young readers will be inspired to interact with their own natural learning skills and start experiencing the world-and their education-in a whole new way.
