Science Verse is a children's picture book written by Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith. It won the Picture Book prize in the 2005 Golden Duck Awards.

A follow-up to Math Curse, the book, published by Viking Press, tells the story - in verse - of a student who, according to his teacher, hears "the poetry of science in everything". Later, the art teacher says their art should be their life, similar to the last line of the preceding book Math Curse.

In the story, there are several humorous poems about science. They are poems fitted from famous works such as "The Raven", "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening".

A promotional CD (total time 5:12) with Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith reading selections from the book was released by Viking some time shortly before publication of the book on September 27, 2004.
