“Explore Winter! and Explore Spring! are chock-a-block with facts and info-boxes on animal habitats, migration patterns, nesting habits, foraging, etc. Most [projects] looked simple, using stuff already cluttering your kitchen or family room, and could be done by a supervised five-year old or independent seven-to-nine year old. Take your kids hiking through the woods and look for signs of chewed acorns or nibbled branches. Deer! How cool.”
School Librarian's Workshop

Detailed Book Description
Young readers become scientists in the field when Explore Winter! sends them off to answer the question "Why do we have winter?" with experiments and projects that mix real science with real fun. Combining hands-on learning with trivia, jokes, riddles, and terrific illustrations, chapters start with the "tools" of science-the scientific method and how to keep a science journal-and then investigate the winter constellations, long nights and long shadows, animal tracking in snow, and food-gathering behavior in birds.
