Zoey loves to play, pretend, and experiment in this inviting STEM story with elements of fantasy.

Zoey and her pet cat use science experiments to help a dragon with a problem. But are marshmallows the right medicine for a fire breathing dragon?

Great read for budding scientists full of magical creatures and plenty of illustrations. Perfect for beginning readers.

Great books to talk about caring for animals / the environment and also introduces the scientific method in an easy to understand way.

Dragons and Marshmallows is the first in a wonderful chapter book series about a kid scientist and her pet cat. In this book, Zoey takes on a new project while her mom is away on a work trip. She uses the scientific method to figure out how to nurse a baby dragon back to health. This is a lovely book, but it should be noted that the creators are not BIPOC.

At LPL, this book is available in print form and as an ebook on Hoopla.

Zoey is a great role model, and there's hardly any mention of school, which I like, since we home school. My 5 year old loves them, and later on we could re-read (or she could read them herself) and try some of Zoey's science experiments.

I loved when Marshmallow the dragon came because he was so cute, funny and magical. He got sick, at the end he had to leave. zoey was really sad. I really wish there was more to read.

My almost 5yo is loving this story! I randomly picked it off the shelf. When I finish a chapter (short 4-6 pages with pictures and picture book sized print), she wants to read the next one. There's enough pictures and chapters are short enough my 3yo likes it too!

Plus it's a girl of color explaining science!

And there's magic!

A relatable young girl uses a scientific approach to care for magical animals. Good expression of emotion and nice family dynamics with the parents. Very appealing.
