The Spark

By Shannen Yauger
Picture Books

Michael Faraday’s entire life was based around one theme: a spark. When he was young, his passion was sparked by books and the teachers around him. When he was an adult, he created sparks. As he grew older, he became inspired to spark the love of learning and experimentation in the young minds of the future. If it were not for these small sparks, the world today would not have the same ability to harness and create electricity, which fuels everything about modern life. Read this story of one of the greatest scientific pioneers of our time, and perhaps your child will receive the spark he or she needs to become the next innovator and change the world!

This book is an read-aloud book for our Wonders of Energy science unit and is included in the Wonders of Energy Read-Aloud Book Pack which is suggested to accompany the unit.
