Scientists Get Dressed (Hardcover)
National DeBary Award Winner for Outstanding Science Books for Children
Scientists Get Dressed by award-winning author Deborah Lee Rose zooms in on what scientists do based on what they put on to work. Kids will be fascinated and surprised to learn that scientists wear not only white lab coats, but helmets, jackets, boots, goggles, fins, spacesuits, waders, harnesses, and gloves of all kinds in this photo-filled, 10 x 10 picture book (the differing gloves of volcano scientists, water scientists, brain surgeons, and avian/raptor scientists is fairly amazing reading).
All science settings are here too: high forest canopy, dark bat caves; hazards like germs, chemicals and the Sun's dangerous radiation; volcanic lava fields, warm ocean waves, frigid polar ice caps, beehives, and beyond Earth's atmosphere.
Four expanded, fold-out spreads and an educational poster on the book jacket's reverse side inspire further discovery into how scientists suit up, gown up, gear up and dress up in costume to make new scientific discoveries, save lives and save our planet.
