World Migratory Bird Day is on May 12, 2018. This year, the day celebrates the Year of the Bird. SB&F recognizes this important day for birds with its bibliography of books about birds that cover everything from blue birds to penguins.
In this issue, we also continue with our series of remarks by the winners of the 2018 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books. This month’s remarks are from Steve Jenkins, who won in the Middle Grades Category for his book, Animals by the Numbers: A Book of Animal Infographics.
Since spring is a great time to get outside and explore nature, our Read-Around-A-Theme this month focuses on an insect that is sure to grab kids’ attention: butterflies. This selection of books provides information alongside beautiful photos and illustrations of these striking insects.
Finally, you can get a look ahead at what will be on TV in June by perusing our Science on TV section. You can tune in to PBS for its stimulating Nature and NOVA. In addition, be on the lookout for its portrayal of Stephen Hawking on June 6.
As always, thanks for reading and enjoy your spring!
