Oscar and the Cricket: A Book About Moving and Rolling

Waring, Geoff.  Oscar and the Cricket:  A Book About Moving and Rolling. (2008). Cambridge, MA:  Candlewick Press. ISBN:  978-0-763-64029-3.

This book is perfect for the kindergarten science classroom.  The Ohio Academic Standards in physical science/forces and motion indicators asks students to investigate ways to change how something is moving, and that is exactly what Oscar, the gray and white kitten in Geoff Waring’s book does.    Along with his friend cricket, Oscar discovers how to get objects going, how to keep them going, and just what stops an object.  Add your own red rubber ball and the lesson is complete.  Oscar and the Cricket can currently be found with the new books in the CRC hallway at JUV W2765oc
