Picture Book Review- NerdyCorn by Andrew Root

 Today I am looking at an adorable picture book, NerdyCorn, written by Andrew Root and illustrated by Erin Kraan. I fell in love just from the cover. The inside did not disappoint! This book is fabulous. It illustrates that girls can be into science and math too. Fern, our precious Nerdy Corn, refuses to change and takes a stand against bullies.

The Book-

Meet Fern! She’s a smart, creative unicorn who prefers building robots and coding software to jumping through shimmering rainbows and splashing in majestic waterfalls. Even though Fern is a good friend and always willing to help others, the other unicorns tease her and call her a nerdycorn.

One day, Fern has had enough and decides to stop fixing her friends’ broken things. But then the confetti machine, the rainbow synthesizer, and the starlight bedazzler all go haywire during the biggest Sparkle Dance Party of the year! Fern can certainly fix them…but will she?

My Thoughts-

Loved the illustrations, they are so bold and colorful. The details are amazing. The story really has a great theme and plot. I loved this book! My only advice, make sure you catch up on your science, math, or mechanical terms because big ones like quadratic equations and hydrothermal capacitor pop up.
