Tech and geek fans would be happy to introduce Scott & Witty Wikky – A Young Inventor’s Quest to the kids. With a focus in STEM education in recent years, our children are often encouraged to think out of the box and to explore, create and innovate. Scott & Witty Wikky – A Young Inventor’s Quest is a book that is enjoyable to read. The presentation is light and fun at the same time with a context that appeals to our children and their daily life.
Scott is a smart, young inventor and a self-disciplined primary school boy who understands the importance of getting his work done promptly and with due diligence. With full-coloured illustrations that children can easily relate to, sometimes I find myself laughing at the jokes too. These are character-building disguised in the form of jokes.
In Scott’s inventions, he aims to solve real-life situations in order to make life better for everybody.
His quest for the Tan Kah Kee Young Inventor’s Award brings us through scenarios of dealing with real life situations which we all face in some time of our life or others – How to react to the success of others when they have done better than me? and How to prepare for that all-important interview?
Scott’s invisible friend, Witty Wikky is an encyclopedia-like device which knows everything and follows him everywhere. Witty Wikky’s existence provided guidance in grammar, definition and solutions. Children are also encouraged to email to Witty Wikky and share their views as well.
I enjoyed reading the book and is pleased that the book explained the basis of Tan Kah Kee Young Inventor’s Award, Nobel Prize and it’s different categories, as well as some of the famous award recipients.
This is a good educational book for 6 – 10 year old children, a gem in every page of the 136 pages. Aside from real life lessons, there is a very good amount of general knowledge and vocabulary introduced all over the book which introduced the children not only to more powerful words but also explained the meaning to them on the same page. The book also encouraged children to be innovative and creative.
A copy of this book can be purchased at the below website. Each book is $13.
