Rube Goldberg's Simple Normal Humdrum School Day
If Rube’s inventions are any indication, “normal” means something very different in the Goldberg household. For Rube, up is down, in is out, and the simplest path to accomplishing an everyday task—like brushing his teeth or getting dressed—is a humorously complicated one. Follow Rube as he sets out on a typical school day, overcomplicating each and every step from the time he wakes up in the morning until the time he goes to bed at night.
This book features fourteen inventions, each depicting an interactive sequence whose purpose is to help Rube accomplish mundane daily tasks: a simple way to get ready for school, to make breakfast, to do his homework, and so much more.
Rube is not a normal kid. Follow along as he overcomplicates each and every step he takes – from the time he gets out of bed in the morning to the time he goes to bed at night – all while having some unexpected adventures along the way. He is an inventor who builds epic contraptions. You can teach the basics of STEM and STEAM by using the illustrations in these books. If your child likes to solve problems, tinker, or invent, they will love this series!
