While trying to cross a moat, Archimedes the Goat and Skinny the Hen learn why objects sink or float. By the author of The Curious Demise of the Contrary Cat and the illustrator of Itsy-Bitsy Baby Mouse.

Simon and Schuster
A goat and a hen turn a playful exploration of physics into scientific fun that rises to the top!

Archie the Goat has a delivery to make. He has several barrels of buttermilk that the queen needs, but in order to get them to her, he needs to cross the moat.

Testing several different theories to find out what will float and what will sink, Archie and his friend Skinny the Hen don’t succeed at first, but they do try, try, try again (and again). And with reason and persistence, they’ll get that buttermilk where it needs to be!

Children love silly rhyming lines and this tale of "crazy scientist" goat and go-along hen is short, simple, and silly as children can easily see many possibilities for a solution, plus simple physics is introduced.

I would love to introduce the physics concept to 2nd or3rd graders with this book. Though some might initially think it below them, they would enjoy the silliness and become engaged to grasp the science.
