"Concepts are explained concisely and clearly, and a short glossary provides valuable vocabulary building. The slightly larger font makes the text inviting for emerging readers, and the illustrations blend perfectly into the story. Sassafras and the dragon prove to be able sidekicks in the vein of Disney characters...while this book is a natural fit for STEM collections, it deserves a place in all libraries serving young readers." -- School Library Journal
"...Citro gracefully balances her story’s scientific and fantasy elements." -- Publishers Weekly
"...the imaginative premise and the incorporation of STEM elements make this an attractive and engaging choice." -- Booklist
"...tales for young audiences that model the scientific method are nice to see." -- Kirkus Reviews
"...a delightful beginning reader. I will definitely recommend this to kids and I look forward to the other books in this series." -- Mel Barnes, University Bookstore
"Zoey and Sassafras are our heroes! My kids love unravelling their mysterious circumstance, and they even made their own "thinking goggles." Zoey is an awesome role model." -- Megan Lingo, Reading Teacher and Educational Therapist at Chickadee Lit

This is a great STEM book that my 4 year old son and 3 year old daughter have had me read to them 3 times in a row already. The main character, Zoey, uses experiments to figure out what is wrong with hurt magical creatures. In the first, she runs an experiment to figure out what a baby dragon eats!
If you're looking for a great book to work on science concepts in an interesting way, give this one a try!
This is a fantastic next step in science books from Asia Citro. Her screen free and curious kid books are a great start for kids and parents together. Zoey and Sassafras can be read with adults, but they can also be read and understood alone by kids who are ready for their own chapter books.
Although it throws in some science facts, mostly it is an entertaining book about a girl who can see magical creatures and helps a sick baby dragon. It show empathy and love for animals.
I think it is a well-written story and like the fact that it has some educational elements thrown in. Definitely better than a lot of the "fluff" written for this age group.
