Eat Your Rocks, Croc!
Dr. Sugar Glider travels around the world to help animals (and, on occasion, plants!) with all sorts of problems. Whether it’s a crocodile with a sick stomach, a creeped-out krill, a stressed meerkat, or a male praying mantis trying to date, Dr. Glider is ready to offer advice!Take a Closer Look
From a young age, Marie Tharp loved watching the world. She loved solving problems. And she loved pushing the limits of what girls and women were expected to do and be. In the mid-twentieth century, women were not welcome in the sciences, but Marie had other plans.Take a Closer Look
Bunbun & Bonbon: Fancy Friends
Hop Hop Hooray for Jess Keating's first graphic novel!
Bunbun has it all: a delightful Bunbun nose, a winning Bunbun smile, a ridiculously cute Bunbun tail, and not one, but two adorable Bunbun ears. But Bunbun doesn’t have a friend — until Bunbun meets Bonbon.Take a Closer Look
The 'Elements of Genius' Books
There are only so many times a kid can invent an instrument of global destruction without getting grounded. But when her death ray is stolen, Nikki must stop worrying about fitting in and learn to play nice with her new classmates. Because it doesn’t take a genius to track a thief around the world, outwit the authorities, and keep a French fry fanatic ferret happy. It takes all of them.Take a Closer Look
A beautiful, lyrical nonfiction picture book about shark scientist (and all around amazing woman!) Eugenie Clark! This book not only depicts a ‘real life’ view of science, but also dozens of amazing creatures and the role that Eugenie Clark has played in shark research and ocean conservation. Along with the text, the illustrations are meticulously detailed, and every inch of them is scientifically robust, making this a great book to prompt discussions, explorations in science, and STEM units!Take a Closer Look
The World of Weird Animals
A funny nonfiction series that explores the incredible world of weird and bizarre creatures. Full of amazing facts, eye-catching, colorful (and sometimes gross!) photos, and illustrator David DeGrand’s goofy-wonderful cartoons. A must-read series for curious kids.Take a Closer Look
