The Curious Adventures of Sydney and Symon in: Water Wonders / Las Curiosas Aventuras de Sydney Y Symon en: Las Maravillas del Agua gives elementary school children the opportunity to tap into their curiosity and explore math and science while discovering the joy of reading and writing at the same time.

With English and Spanish versions under one cover, Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua features two young scientists, Sydney and Symon Starr, a sister and brother team who explore their world by asking questions and conducting experiments with help from their family and teachers. Together, the two discover science and engineering while expressing themselves through writing.

Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua introduces the arts to STEM (science, math, engineering, and technology) education through various activities that encourage readers to experiment and solve problems on their own as well as through suggestions for further reading. This approach is a way to invite more learners into subject areas that can oftentimes seem intimidating and unapproachable.

The book is a collaborative publication from FableVision , Reading Is Fundamental , and NWP. The three organizations hope that Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua will inspire and nurture the next generation of inventors and innovators in elementary school, particularly students age 6 to 8.

Water Wonders / Las Maravillas del Agua was written and illustrated by New York Times bestselling author Peter H. Reynolds and his twin brother Paul A. Reynolds, founders of FableVision, an educational media developer and publisher.
