Sydney & Simon: Full Steam Ahead!.pdf
Sydney and Simon are twin mice on a mission to save the wilting flowers in their window box. During a humid heat wave, their window got stuck, and now they can't open it to water their blossoms before the neighborhood flower show. The young chapter book underscores how the characters use STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to learn about the water cycle on earth and in the home and, ultimately, to rescue their flowers. Curious readers can learn more in a glossary and author's note.

The faucet squeaked when Sydney turned the handle, and the garden hose wiggled as water pulsed through it. Simon aimed straight up toward the flowers, but the flow of water wasn't strong enough. Instead of reaching the flowers, the water came splashing down on Simon's head.
