Board book: This Little Scientist: A Discovery Primer

This Little Scientist: A Discovery Primer. Joan Holub. Illustrated by Daniel Roode. 2018. Simon & Schuster. 26 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence:
Asking why.
Then making a guess.
Asking how.
Then proving with tests.
Little scientists make great big discoveries.
Premise/plot: This board book introduces little ones to ten scientists, and it does so in rhyme. The ten scientists are as follows: Isaac Newton, Maria Sibylla Merian, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Grace Hopper, Katherine Johnson, Jane Goodall, Sau Lan Wu, Stephen Hawking, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

My thoughts: I liked this one. The book includes very basic facts about the scientists and their scientific discoveries. The rhyme worked for the most part.
This little scientist
studied outer space surprises
like mysterious black holes
that form in many sizes.
