"Carson explored the woods and creeks near her home. Then she would ask questions about what she saw."
This wonderfully rich, detailed biography of biologist and writer Rachel Carson was written to engage and inspire, as well as inform. When children read about the life of a distinguished historical figure, they begin to see that famous people are not much different: they were children, they had families, they learned, and they worked toward a goal. Discovering connections between themselves and a real scientist is an insightful moment for young readers! Paperback, 32 pages.
