Yesterday I went to the March for Science in DC, which happened to be, appropriately, on Earth Day. It was a day filled with great people, great posters and a sense of purpose. Even the rain couldn't dampen the that warming feeling - together, we can change this world for the better. Still, I struggle with the fact that I just went to a march for science. Science! Really? This is what we've come to?
Today is the March for Science! (It's also very appropriately Earth Day of which I'm a big fan.) In honor of all things science-y, I've compiled a list of the favorite books of some of my favorite scientists! These are books these scientists have said are some of their favorites! (Yay scientists and science and books!)
I haven't recently posted anything specifically for my Books Over Looks blog series, the purpose of which is to talk about how to help kids, particularly girls, realize books, reading, education and thought are more important than material things or how many likes they have on Instagram. A recent study that found as early as 6 years old, girls already think they are NOT as smart as boys made me think it was time for another installment.
