It's a Round, Round World!
Written and illustrated by Ellie Peterson
Boyds Mills Kane 2019

We all know the earth is round. But HOW do we know? Join intrepid young scientist-adventurer Joulia Copernicus as she takes readers on a historical journey through time and space. From jumping on board Columbus's ship to planet-hopping in the outer reaches of our solar system, Joulia explains with humor and wit the ins and outs of how we learned that the earth is round.

"An amusing, thought-provoking presentation in which observations and reason lead to a sound conclusion." Starred Booklist Review

"This lighthearted addition to the STEM shelf encourages children to question, hypothesize, experiment, and observe. (Informational picture book. 6-9)" Kirkus Reviews
