Nonfiction Monday: The Frog Scientist
The Frog Scientist. By Pamela S. Turner. 2009. [July 2009] Houghton Mifflin. 64 pages.
Science has never been my strongest subject. But I have been fascinated now and then by learning about scientists. By the whys and hows of their work. Reading about that can be interesting. The Frog Scientist is about a passionate scientist, Tyrone Hayes, and his work to study frogs, to study the effects of several chemicals (pesticides) on the environment, on the frogs who are most sensitive to changes in the environment. Those interested in science, in the environment, in frogs will find much to appreciate in The Frog Scientist.
