Adventure, mystery, and science all rolled up into a set of exciting living books!

Take a journey to learn science with Blaine and Tracey Sassafras!
Hi-ya – we are Blaine and Tracey Sassafras! And, we want to take you on an invisible zip-line journey around the world to learn about science.
Well not in real life because the technology patent is still pending for the lines, but we have got the next best thing lined up for you – a living book!
Here is what some of our current travelers have to say about the series:
“My kids absolutely love these adventures! They talk about them all day long. Even my 3- and 5-year-old can remember animal facts from these books. Highly recommend!” ~ (Review from Amazon)
"My children begged for science and more science today. They are having so much fun traveling the world with Blaine and Tracey in their zoological adventures. My oldest is sneaking the book under the covers at night to get a head start on the rest of us." ~ (Review from Facebook)
You can read the novel alone, or add in the activity guide and logbook for a complete living books science curriculum. Learn how this works by watching the video below or skip the movie and start your science-learning adventure now!

The Story behind the Sassafras Science Adventures

Still here? Want to know the longer version of the story?
Here it goes – Blaine and I (Tracey) used to hate science. It was soooooo boring and all the textbook facts just seemed to fall right out of our heads. In fact, we bombed every science test we took.
So, our parents shipped us off to our Uncle Cecil to learn to see if he could make those science facts stick. We were totally bummed because he is a bit . . . eccentric - after all he can't even get our names right!
Imagine our surprise when we found out that we wouldn't be spending the summer listening to lectures. Instead, we would be zipping around the world on invisible zip lines invented by Uncle Cecil and his prairie dog lab assistant, President Lincoln.
We ended up having the most amazing adventure-filled summer learning about science face-to-face. Now you can join our journey through the novels of the Sassafras Science series.

"Despite the fact that we finished our science reading for the week, AND despite having a "day off" bc it was his younger brother's birthday. My 1st grader STILL asked if we could do science today! He really enjoys the Sassafras Science Adventures and though we're only on Chapter 7 of book 1 he's already asked about what other books were in the series and if we can read those too!"

"I bought the sassafras twins zoology lap booking guide (and novel) as a supplement to our decent science curriculum. (1st grade). We've all but eliminated our "core" science and are now just so enjoying the twins adventures instead. I have to admit that I was all choked up reading the end of the dessert chapter. There was some challenging moral stuff (in an inspiring way) as Mesneh was challenged to rise up! (Thinking of Mel Gibson in Braveheart?!) Anyway we can hardly put the book down long enough to make the lap books and the extra activities. (We do them because my daughter loves them too!!) Even my 3 yo walks around covering his eyebrows and saying in a sinister voice 'I'm the man with no eyebrows!' In short: A+ from our family!! " (Review from Facebook)
