Citizen Scientists - Loree Griffin Burns and Ellen Harasimowicz

Do you like to explore nature, hang out with animals, and make scientific discoveries? Loree Griffin Burns wants you and your friends to become CITIZEN SCIENTISTS (Holt, $19.99). You can tag butterflies in the fall, birdwatch in the winter, find frogs in the spring, and look for ladybugs all summer. Burns introduces each activity with a real science project, like Dr. Orley “Chip” Taylor’s butterfly tagging project, which encourages citizen scientists in Canada, the US, and Mexico to help track monarch butterfly migrations across the continent. With stunning photographs by Ellen Harasimowicz, this is a must-read for nature lovers and budding scientists. Ages 8-12. DMC
