ARLINGTON, Va.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Last August, NSTA Press announced the launch of NSTA Kids, a collection of children’s trade books dedicated to nurturing the wonder and curiosity inherent in young minds. The series Next Time You See has just released 2 new books, bringing the series to 4 books, all designed for children in grades K–6 and written to engage them and impart sound science.
Morgan’s new titles – Next Time You See a Pill Bug and Next Time You See a Firefly – are a reminder that you don’t have to look far to find something remarkable in nature. Free supplementary activities are available on the NSTA website. Share these books with a child and discover why fireflies flash and how they live secret lives underground before coming out to fill the evening with their glimmers of light or that just under a nearby rock, you’ll spot a pill bug that can roll into a ball and then unroll to take a walk.
