Praise for other books in the Picture Book Science series

Forces - Booklist Starred Review March 15, 2018
Forces, despite its down-to-earth scientific grounding, manages to do the nearly impossible. Diehn brings gravity, magnetism, push-pull forces, and friction to life in everyday contexts, without a hint of schoolroom jargon. Children, parents, and teachers alike can enjoy learning the charming, often funny, relatable, and accessible science within this Picture Book Science series (4 titles) offering.”

Detailed Book Description

AVAILABLE AUGUST 2020. How do whales make their hearing better?  What do lemurs do to make a point during an argument?

In Stink Fights, Earwax, and Other Marvelous Mammal Adaptations, children ages 5 to 9 learn how lemurs settle arguments and how earwax helps a whale’s sense of hearing, along with a host of other deliciously strange-but-true tales! The lively conversational tone and the hilarious descriptions of bizarre adaptations engage a child’s sense of wonder while providing an introduction to a crucial scientific concept. A great choice as both a read aloud and for early readers.
