Science is about questions -- asking them, searching for answers -- as Lee Bennett Hopkins shows in this brilliant collection of poems. With sensitivity and wonder, poets explore biology, chemistry, physics, and more. They ask how insects know that winter is coming and why the wind sometimes blusters, sometimes pauses. They tell us that a prism bends a beam of light and sand is made of ground rocks. But most of all, they remind us that we're all scientists at heart because of our curiosity. Lee Bennett Hopkins combines new voices with those of beloved poets like Carl Sandburg, Valerie Worth, and David McCord. And Virginia Halstead's fanciful illustrations are the perfect complement to this thought-provoking anthology. In these pages, you'll discover the glory of science and the scientist in yourself.
