The Boy Who Invented the Popsicle Treat by Anne Renaud

The The Cool Science Behind Frank Epperson’s Famous Frozen Treat

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: A non-fiction story that read like a fiction book. My daughter was so interested in the story. She kept asking, so this is a true story mom, a “NON-FICTION”. It was so fun for her to imagine how this favorite treat of hers came to be.

How I Felt: The book paused with each piece of science that led to the final creation of the Popsicle and would have a Do-It-Yourself page on how to try this science experiment. It made me so happy to see this as I have children that adore a good science experiment day! This book would be great in schools and classrooms. Children become connected to the story and then see how the science behind it worked.

To Read or Not To Read: Everyone can read this book. It’s an easy story for a young child to enjoy, but it would hold the attention of up to a 4th grader because the content is very intriguing.

What’s This Book About Anyway?

Frank Epperson invented the Popsicle as a man, but as a boy, he was already in love with science and inventions. He had the spark of genius as a young child, that he held on to until his adulthood when we pushed himself to create it and sell it.

Fun Fact: Not only was a he a great inventory, but also a skilled salesman. He would send his children in one at a time to a store and have them ask for the Popsicle, and the owner would have to say they didn’t carry it, then Frank would come by a few days later, after the kids had been in a few times. Frank would offer the Popsicle, and had a sale, no problem!
