Children's Science (and Engineering) Books and Jeff, Joanne and Jonah

When my kids were small, I especially liked the large selection of books available in the science genre, including all of the DK (Dorling Kindersley) Eyewitness series, any book by Seymour Simon, The Let's-Read-and-Find-Out-Science, stage 2 by Harper Collins and of course, The Magic Schoolbus series!

Here is a collection of recent books I've collected!

Here are the books and appropriate links to the author's websites featured in the video:

Why Is Snot Green? and How Loud Can You Burp?: More Extremely Important Questions (and Answers) by Glenn Murphy

Felicity Frobisher and the Three-headed Aldebaran Dust Devil by Marcus Chown

Little Moon by Dr. Stuart Clark

Ocean Life From A to Z Book and DVD by Annie Crawley

Engineering the ABC's: How Engineers Shape Our World by Patty O'Brien Novak

Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be by Daniel Loxton

Katie of the Sonoran Desert: Based on a True Story (English and Spanish Edition) by Kate Jackson

 

I hope among this list you can find something appropriate for any child in your life.

gummy/jeffjoanne1.jpgThis past week I met Jeff Corwin. Yes, the Animal Planet guy. He has a new book called 100 Heartbeats: The Race to Save Earth's Most Endangered Species . I've read it and promise to review it for you. He has a new initiative that you can learn about by clicking on his name above. I'll talk about it more later, too.

He is every bit as funny on stage as he is on his shows. It was a worthwhile trip to sit amongst a throng of college students who grew up on his shows to see him.

This week I also met science author Jonah Lehrer. I will confess my attraction to his brains. No kidding. I love his books and will read anything he publishes. Jonah helped me make a video about science communication, but as that is debuting on Bora Zivkovic's blog "Blog Around the Clock" tomorrow, you'll either have to visit there or just wait a bit before I add it to this site.My interview on Bora's blog will be unique, you'll see.

I did you a favor and linked to the page in Bora's blog that goes to a great video animated in post-it notes! It is so worth the time to watch!

I have a post I'm working on that will indeed be published here in April, during Autism Awareness Month. It will have a personal perspective and I hope it will be informative and helpful to my readers.

Kindly,

Joanne
