Parker Bell and the Science of Friendship

(3) 1-3 Illustrated by Rea Zhai. Aspiring robotic engineer Parker navigates social interactions in her quest to win her elementary school's Science Triathlon. The focus on friendship and teamwork, alongside believable scientific endeavors, gives this cheerful addition to the tinkering-girl sub-genre greater emotional depth. Cartoon-style digital illustrations match the light tone.
