    1. Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. A charming chapter book in which Zoey and her cat, Sassafras, rely on the scientific method to save an ailing baby dragon.

    2. This series is a brilliant way to introduce the scientific method to kids! After reading the first book together, my son spent days running around with "thinking goggles" on his head and solving the problems of all the magical (a.k.a. stuffed) animals in his room. And the whimsical illustrations are adorable. (We received an advance copy of the book -- and so glad we did!)

    3. What the Magic Tree House series does for historical topics, this series does for science.Fall in love with an atypical main character as she explores the world of science -- with a little dose of magic thrown in to make everything more fun and exciting!Author Asia Citro weaves learning into the story line so effortlessly, kids won't even realize it because they're just having fun!OhMyGoodness, this book is hands-down our favorite thing in the world right now -- our enthusiasm over it has honest [...]

    4. Things I loved about this book (in no particular order):* short chapters* cute illustrations* Zoey deals with real emotions* Science journals & how to run experimentswithout seeming like you're learning about science journals and how to run experiments!It's a quick read but both my 6 yr old and I enjoyed it. We will be checking out the rest of the series to see how it continues!

    5. I've been struggling to find read-aloud materials for my girls. They love picture books, but anytime I bust out a chapter book, the cringe and groan. (sniff sniff) FINALLY a winner! I bought Zoey and Sassafras because it was short, had a bunch of pictures, and blends science and magical animals together! How awesome is that?My girls read this with me in one sitting (all 96 pages). Every time I finished a chapter they groaned (the good kind) and begged for more. We've put the rest of the books on [...]

    6. This is hands down my favorite new easy chapter book series. A spunky girl with the ability to see magical creatures along with her sidekick kitty, what's not to like? This will be very popular with the library kids!

    7. I am always so happy to find great, new, early chapter books. This one has a LOT going for it. I like Hilary McKay's Lulu books just a bit more because of McKay's skill with creating character depth, but this series is still worth displaying and recommending.

    8. Thanks to Megan for discovering this adorable series yesterday at work. It features a female POC, an adorable cat, science, and magic. I'm excited that the first three came out at the same time and I'm looking forward to reading the next two (but especially #3, the one that started it all)!

    9. A charming blend of STEM concepts and magical elements, this easy chapter book may appeal to fans of the Magic Tree House books, curious explorers, and dragon enthusiasts. Oh, and it's a diverse title with wonderful illustrations! Overall a great find!

    10. Loved this! It has magical animal and teaches kids the scientific method. This is going to be super popular with the kids!

    11. This early chapter book mixes fantasy and science! Zoey finds a baby dragon and tries to take care of it. To figure out what it eats, she experiments with different kinds of food. She makes predictions and records her findings. She also uses her knowledge about reptiles (cold or warm blooded? Herbivore, omnivore or carnivore?) to help the baby dragon. This book also features a wonderful family relationship and a female of color as the main protagonist. Great for kids in 1-3rd grade who are ready [...]

    12. Zoey and Sassafras: Dragons and Marshmallows is the story of a young girl and her pet cat who use science experiments to help a dragon with a problem. The book is so much more however. Beautifully illustrated and descriptively written. The science experiments are things any pioneering parent-child team could replicate at home and there are many great lessons in the book including understanding the difference between omnivores and carnivores and cooking recipes for baby dragons.This book is aimed [...]

    13. I am always on the lookout for great transitional chapter books, and was thrilled to find this right after finishing Clover's Luck, another great book featuring the treatment of magical animals (but for a slightly older crowd). Zoey discovers that she, her mother, and her cat Sassafras share a secret--they can see magical creatures. Not only this, but Zoey's mother has been helping these creatures when they are sick or injured. When Zoey's mother goes away on a business trip, Zoey becomes respon [...]

    14. If you have a kiddo age 4- 10, you need to pick up this book. Zoey is discovers the ability to see magical creatures in her forest. She ( along with her bug-eating cat) uses her talents, conducts experiments, and uses the scientific process to help any of them who are injured or hurt. Some wonderful reasons why you should read this book: Big Font, Short Chapters, Adorable Pictures, Focus on One big scientific problem but with lots of other little problems to solve, Uses previous knowledge to hel [...]

    15. I found this series at ALA and purchased it a while after. They're a fun easy read for kids that includes science, dragons, and cats with personality - what more can you ask for? My five-year-old had it read to him and he really enjoyed it and has asked for book two in the series, but it could be pretty easily read by most 2nd graders I suspect and I think would be enjoyed by most kids that age. It's fun and includes fantastical elements, but it also talks about the process of science and how sc [...]

    16. Zoey is a little girl whose mother is a scientist. As her mother prepares for a trip, Zoey discovers a glowing photograph her mother is hiding. Before long she also discovers a sick magical baby dragon with her cat Sassafras. Using the scientific method for carefully figuring out how to help the sick creature, she models procedures exactly as a scientist. With lots of pictures and a satisfying tale, this is an ideal tale for guideing girls into scientific interests, and of course STEM. The famil [...]

    17. This is an excellent book that's both well written and well developed in terms of concept. The book aims to show scientific concepts as both usual and exciting parts of a child's daily life. I received an early copy to review and, to be honest, I had a slight bias towards the author when beginning the book. After reading the copy I'm both impressed by the ability to deliver valuable thought patterns in the form of an interesting fiction book and excited that there are two other books in the seri [...]

    18. I thought this was a wonderful tale about Zoey and her cat Sassafras (love the name!). There was a great mix of fantasy and real life science. Zoey helps her mom by watching a magic bell that brings fantasy animals in need of care to their house. Along the way she uses different aspects of the scientific method: observation, hypothesis, analyze, etc. in order to understand the world around her. She keeps her notes in her science notebook which, as a middle school teacher, was great to read about [...]

    19. Zoey wears her Thinking Goggles on TOP of her head, so they are closer to her brain. Those thinking goggles come in handy when she finds out that her mom helps take care of sick magical creatures in the barn behind their house! It's perfect timing - since her mom is going away for a week, now it's Zoey's turn to help. When a sick baby dragon turns up, Zoey uses scientific theories and experiments to find out what's wrong and help the dragon get better. Adorable, educational and fun; great for yo [...]

    20. I really liked this story! Zoey is so adorable! She loves bugs and outside and science. She finds out that she is able--like her mother--to see magical animals. They come to their barn out back if they're sick or need help. Typically her mom helps them, but she goes on a trip so Zoey is on duty. A little dragon ends up needing her help and she has to design experiments to discover what's wrong with him. It's super cute and I'm excited to read the next one. Also, my 8 year old daughter loved it a [...]

    21. This series is so cute! I love how even though it's written as an early reader type of chapter book it doesn't have that stilted feel that so many of them do. So when I read it aloud to my daughter, the language still flowed beautifully. The story is fun and interesting, and I think it's awesome how the author incorporates the scientific method into the story. Real science with a fantasy twist! My 8 year old loved it. I already bought the other 2 books in the series and we can't wait to read the [...]

    22. A former science teacher and kid lit author, Asia Citro, creates a girl character of color with inquisitiveness, love of science, bugs, and research. Zoey's mom, who is a professional and lover of science too, empowers her daughter with trust and passion for research. Marion Lindsay illustrates this story in a warm and friendly manner keeping the story linked to a enjoyable read for the early chapter book reader.

    23. This book is a wonderful combination of science and imagination. My kids loved sweet Zoey and her cat, Sassafras. They rooted for her as she attempted to help her first magical patient, Marshmallow. The well paced storytelling kept them wanting more and wondering what would come next. I loved how Zoey models basic scientific skills and problem solving. A wonderful chapter book for young elementary schoolers. We can't wait to read the next one.

    24. Great first chapter book to read togetherThis book is engaging and adorable. My daughter and I read it together at bedtime over a few nights. We couldn't stop at just one chapter. This is our first chapter book. My daughter is almost six and reading fair. I want to encourage her to love reading, and fun books like this makes the job much easier. It's a plus that I enjoyed it as well, and I'm a voracious reader.

    25. What do you get when you cross a spunky heroine, a bug-loving cat, a baby dragon, and marshmallows? This totally fun book! Dragons and Marshmallows blends elements of fantasy with scientific thinking to teach kids about concepts like the scientific method, animal classification, and more. I've ordered a set of this book for our school library, since we're always on the lookout for fresh STEM titles to get kids thinking. I highly recommend this one!

    26. This was so cute, had interesting science facts scattered throughout and was light/short enough for us to read in mostly one sitting, with characters she wanted to see more of. As an adult it wasn't a struggle to read, like some early readers can feel. There was still some interesting language, and a cute cast of characters

    27. Easy chapter book about a little girl named Zoey who discovers that her mother help nurse magic creatures back to health. Zoey and her cat Sassafras eventually comes across a sick dragon. This book is great for science themed booklists because of the scientific methods used in the story as Zoey tried her best in helping the dragon.

    28. This is a great beginning chapter book. It's about a girl named Zoey, and she helps to heal magical animals. It has fantasy elements and plenty of science elements as well! I liked it very much because it teaches science in a VERY clear manner, and the story is still strong/good. This is the first book in a great NEW Stem-Focused series that I would recommend for first grade and up!

    29. gr 1-3 93pgsZoey learns that she and her mother are both able to see magic animals, like dragons, that no one else can see. When a baby dragon shows up needing help while Zoey's mom is at a conference, it is up to Zoey, using the scientific method to figure out how to help the baby dragon.I loved the inclusion of science in this fantasy story.

    30. A young girl learns she, like her mother, can see magical creatures. Her mother has offered to help them through the years and Zoey has her chance to start this important work when her mother goes out of town. I was pleased to see that Zoey uses science and reasoning as she tries to heal a baby dragon.
