Cece loves being an Adventure Girl almost as much as she loves science, which is why she can't wait for her troop's camping trip. Nature is full of science for Cece to explore! Along with her friends, her mom, and her dog, Einstein, Cece learns how to pitch a tent, set up a campsite, and document landmarks on the trail. Then thunder booms in the distance! Working together, the girls use meteorology and math to determine the location of the storm; engineering to build a shelter; and technology and math to calculate the length of the trek back to the campsite. After all that teamwork, Cece's mom gives them an Adventure Girl surprise!
Illustrated by Vashti Harrison, author and illustrator of the New York Times' bestselling Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, Cece Loves Science and Adventure is just right for curious kids and anyone who loves to explore the great outdoors.
"When they go on a hike, Cece takes pictures of landmarks to track their route. When the sky grows dark, Cece uses her knowledge of types of clouds and the timing between thunder and lightning to figure out how far away the storm is. When her mom’s GPS stops working, Cece recommends using her pictures to make a map back to the campsite.... Cece’s checklists and notes are interspersed throughout, Magic Schoolbus–style, and an endnote defines science terms. Smart girls, friendship, and fun: a winning combination." — Kirkus Reviews
