About the book

It was once again time for the annual Science Fair at East Creek Elementary School. Anna wasn’t excited about the upcoming event because of the embarrassing projects she’d come up with during her 3rd and 4th grade years. This was her last year of elementary school, and she wanted this year to be different. Anna loved to tinker and make new things out of old toys she found at yard sales, but what did her tinkering have to do with a science fair project? Read more to find out if her 5th-grade science fair project turned out to be amazing, a flop, or somewhere in between!

what people are saying about Anna, kid Engineer

Great Children's book. My daughter loves this book. I have read it to her 3 times a night since we received it. -- Mike

We feel they (the Anna and Andre books) are both awesome! Very inspiring for the kiddos. L got a tinkering kit from (his) grandparents b/c of your first book. -- Jenny

I LOVE Anna because she experiences challenges just like my kids; she gets excited, she freaks out, she puts in a ton of work, and she shines! The story is about a science fair, but the lessons she shares are for (many) adventures kids face. --Carla from Teaching Without Chairs

We have this book and the boys love it!  This is a great book for inspiring kids to play creatively and work through challenges!  -- Sandra from R.E.A.L. - World Learners
