New! Electronic formats now available
Three new electronic formats are now available to complement the print books. Online and videos/audio formats are made available free of charge to schools or individuals who purchase the full set of 24 print books. In addition, fully interactive e-books can be downloaded to your iPad for use at home or in the classroom.
The Suzie the Scientist early reader series is available in print form for use at home (as home readers) or for use in the classroom (as guided readers). Each book in the 24 book series is a 16 page, full-colour publication spanning PM reading levels 1-24. Comparable sets of home readers from commercial suppliers can be more than double the cost of this series.
The books have been successfully trialled in schools as quality additions to both home reader and guided reader collections. The pre-, post- and during-reading prompts are combined with introductions to interesting scientific facts and ideas (from Suzie the Scientist) to assist teachers and parents to facilitate reading development while at the same time developing scientific literacy.
Books can be purchased in sets of 24 (spanning year levels K–2), sets of eight (spanning a single year level) or as individual titles. Shop here.

My guided reading group absolutely love the Millie the Mathematician and Suzie the Scientist series. They are totally engaged for the entire session and really look forward to reading. The excitement at discovering the next title we will read together is genuine and creates quite a debate. Thank you for producing such a fabulous resource!

Recently we purchased Millie the Mathematician – P&C Association Special Offer and Suzie the Scientist Early Reader Series as well as received a free additional Millie the Mathematician pack. As they are such a great addition to our home reader and guided reader library, we wish to purchase three more of Suzie the Scientist and two more of Millie the Mathematician so as we would have a library containing four of each math and science packs.

I look forward to receiving the books. I heard about them from the Rotary Assistant Governor of our sector of District 9685, who handed out a flyer at our recent Presidents’ meeting. I’m pleased to hear they have had such strong Rotary support.

I’ve just found your books online. How I wish we had these a few years ago when our little girl (and lover of all things maths and science) had been learning to read! So wonderful to hear about great work coming out of our home state of QLD.
