  1. This looks like a great book – kudos to Shirley for writing it! Over at Archimedes Notebook I’m reviewing “Wacky New Animals” by Heather Montgomery, who I met last fall. It’s a fun book, and I appreciate Heather’s generosity in sharing her thoughts (author interview).

  2. Looks like a fun one! Love the cover 🙂 At Tamarack Writes I’ve got a not-so-STEM-ey book, but a natural history type, and very interesting at that– Hawk I’m your Brother by Byrd Baylor.
