Sid’s nose is being tickled by many smells! Some of them are far away! How can he still smell the scent if he is not in the same room? What makes us be able to smell? Will he ever find out? Can anyone help him understand our system of smell? This fun children’s book will teach you and your little one all about smells in a short, interactive story that will keep you turning the pages.

Madison: “Sid the Science Kid: What’s that Smell?” is about smells. Sid smelled something icky. His brother pooped. He told his friends about stinky baby diapers, pancakes, and ewww! He smelled his dad’s pancakes. A smell is a type of little smell that you smell. Smells are for your nose. I want to read the last page again. I like it, it was good!”

Mom: We really enjoyed reading this book together! Sid the Science Kid is a wonderful tool to help explain everyday scientific discoveries and lessons to your children! I learned a little bit myself! “Sid the Science Kid: What’s that Smell?” has wonderful illustrations and an interesting storyline that you can easily follow along. The author does a wonderful job of explaining a more difficult subject to little ones who are very curious! Madison really enjoyed learning about smells and why we smell things. She doesn’t quite understand molecules yet, but with some repetition reading, she will. I really enjoyed sharing this education experience with my daughter. It was great to hear her ask questions even after the book was done.
