We create children's science books!
Our science books are for all ages.  And our goal is to help children experience the fun of asking questions and finding answers!  In each book children are front and center for the scientific exploration.  This empowers them to make observations, ask questions, and -  with a little help -  find the answers.

Where Did The Sun Go?: The Great American Total Solar Eclipse
By Misty Carty, Ph.D.
  
On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse swept across the continental United States. In Where Did The Sun Go?, you’ll join our journey to Casper, WY to experience The Great American Total Solar Eclipse!  We’ll witness the partial solar eclipse using special eclipse glasses. See strange shadows cast by the eerie light of a crescent Sun.  Watch the sky grow dark, with sunsets on every horizon, as the Moon’s shadow washes over us.  And see the Sun’s glowing atmosphere once it is completely covered by the Moon!
