Being a farmer's daughter, I am a fan of dirt and nature in all of its gritty wonderfullness. I also love how poetry helps kids understand science concepts, because they often engage with poems in a different way than if it's just straight prose.

Everyone and anyone who wants to be a critical thinker needs to understand the scientific method. Perhaps a certain Cheeto-in-Chief would have taken a different path if he’d only learned this lesson. But maybe it’s not too late! Maybe if you win this book, you could send it to him. He and his henchmen could do experiments to understand the difference between fact and fiction.
But wait, it’s still a book, even if it does have pictures. There are still words to be read. And I forgot for a moment that our Cheeto-in-Chief doesn’t read. His gut tells him things, kind of like a psychic. So I guess that leaves him in the group of frightened mice who believe the owl is real. Maybe that owl is a metaphor for a wall. Maybe. Maybe it’s late, and I’m rambling.
In any case, go enter to win Mike Allegra’s new book, Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist! All you have to do is answer one thought-provoking question. I hear there’s going to be another science march. Once you read this book, you’ll be prepared. Your children/students will be prepared. But don’t expect the Cheeto-in-Chief to listen. Happy Reading!

My 10-yr-old son, the cat lover vs. Mike Allegra (HeyLookAWriterFellow), the rodent lover Mike posted the "naughty kitten" doodle he drew (reluctantly) for my son, and in return, Mike received a tribute to furry creatures with front teeth that never stop growing. My iPhone photo of a copy of the original turned the … Continue reading Celebrate Dueling Doodlers!
