In this STEM-powered picture book, gravity becomes a very personal subject for a girl as she stumbles and tumbles through a long day.

When Leda wakes up by falling out of bed, she knows that gravity must be in a very bad mood.

Sure enough, she struggles with stumbles and bumbles at home, on the bus, in the classroom, at recess and lunch… A lesson on gravity illuminates what’s going on. And after a visit to a science center, Leda and gravity are both feeling better. Just in time for her to tumble-- happily!--into bed.

With a very funny text from award-winner Wendelin Van Draanen and bright, bouncy illustrations from Cornelia Lia, Gravity is Bringing Me Down makes it hilariously clear how this science concept impacts kids' lives every day.
