Discover why ice cream melts and leaves turn red in this brilliant picture book designed to unlock a love of science - written by scientist and TV presenter Dr Shini Somara.

Electrifying illustrations and an empowering story combine to introduce young readers to the world of science, observation and problem-solving.

There's NOTHING that Ruben doesn't find fascinating. Why do leaves change colour? What makes ice cream melt? On a trip to the beach with his mum, he discovers how the world works and the brilliant scientists who have helped us understand it. Maybe he can try out some awesome experiments and become a scientist too?

With pages encouraging kids to try out their very own science experiments such as germinating seeds and writing with invisible ink, this brilliant picture book written by scientist and TV presenter Dr Shini Somara unlocks a love of science and celebrates women in STEM.

The second book in an exciting new series. Also available:
- An Engineer Like Me
- A Coder Like Me
- A Mathematician Like Me
