We are HUGE readers here in the Three Boys and an Old Lady household and always on the lookout for fun books to share. Thanks to our friends at Running Press Kids for sending us copies of Awesome Achievers in Technology (ISBN: 978-0762463367) and Awesome Achievers in Science (ISBN: 978-0762463381) by Alan Katz and illustrated by Chris Judge.  We are no strangers to Alan Katz.  His fun, rhythmic text is a favorite!  Check out one of our faves, I'm Still Here in the Bathtub .  So any opportunity to read and share his books is welcomed.
