You’ll Laugh, You’ll Cry, You’ll Wash Your Hands…

It’s a new science book for children 6 and up, and is filled with fascinating facts, irreverent humor, and loads of disgusting photographs of creepy, crawly critters, many of which are invisible to the eye. When I was writing the book, I was urged by my editor to “make it grosser.” And so I did. In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting some of the tidbits from this book here, and invite any of you to post fascinating facts about the “little guys.” My goal was to both inspire children to appreciate the many tiny creatures that inhabit the world, and to remind folks that many of the little animals play a critical role to life on Earth. Yes, yes, when I was writing the book, I became somewhat of an obsessive hand-washer. But now that phase has passed, much to my relief.
