Published: September 2019
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This Unicorns 101 course/guide will tell you everything you need to know about these magical creatures. The facts are 99.9% authoritative and are pretty well-vetted. I know this because the scientists look super official in their white lab coats! Professors Glitter Pants, Sprinkle Steed, Star Hoof, and Sugar Beard have done the research and are prepared to share their findings, debunking any myths, and dropping some serious knowledge that will prepare you to earn your very own unicorn scientist certificate. You will learn how to tell the age of a unicorn, what their legendary horns are made of, and how they settle their disputes with the ancient ritual of the dance-off! Be prepared to laugh out loud with your kiddos and beware of cute baby unicorns!

Unicorns 101 matches two of the major requests I’ve been getting lately in my K-5 library. The first being unicorns. “Mrs. Carter, we need more books about unicorns.” The second is glitter. The glitter action on this front cover will dazzle your readers for sure! I can’t wait to get a copy (or two) to add to our library. It’s already on order in fact. After reading Explorers of the Wild, Where Oliver Fits, and our absolute favorite, Sir Simon Super Scarer, I have learned to simply add Cale Atkinson’s books to our collection without question. And now that I have a copy of the galley in my hands, I know it will be a hit with my readers.
