About Whatever the Weather: Science Experiments and Art Activities That Explore the Wonders of Weather by Annie Riechmann and Dawn Suzette Smith from the Roost Books website: “The weather around us offers a perfect starting point for exploring nature: paint in the rain, send kites soaring in the wind, build ice orbs, and become a snowflake scientist. The engaging science experiments and open-ended art activities in this book provide a hands-on approach to exploring and understanding the weather we experience every day. This guide to weather science encourages creativity, questioning, and a spirit of curiosity; it will inspire a sense of wonder and adventure—no matter what the day brings.”
About Raising Wild: Dispatches from a Home in the Wilderness by Michael P. Branch from the Roost Books website: “For over a decade Michael P. Branch has been writing about life in Nevada’s Great Basin Desert with an audacity, lyricism, and wit all his own. In Raising Wild, Branch offers an intimate exploration of the western high desert. Here we find the wild and extreme land of caliche and juniper, where pronghorn antelope run and mountain lions stalk, where wildfires and snowstorms threaten in equal measure, and where Branch, his wife, and their two curious little girls brazenly live among the packrats and ground squirrels, rattlesnakes and scorpions. In this inspired and hilarious exploration of natural history and parenting, Branch reveals a desert wilderness in which our ideas about nature and ourselves are challenged and transformed.”
About Home Grown: Adventures in Parenting off the Beaten Path, Unschooling, and Reconnecting with the Natural World by Ben Hewitt from the Roost Books website: “In this most personal of his books to date, Ben Hewitt shows us how small, mindful decisions about day-to-day life can lead to greater awareness of the world in our backyards and beyond. In telling the story of his sons’ unconventional education in the fields and forests surrounding his family’s northern Vermont farm, he demonstrates that the sparks of learning are all around us, just waiting to be discovered. No matter where we live, Home Grown reminds us that learning at any age is a lifelong process, and that the best education is never confined to a classroom. Hewitt’s story will inspire you to reclaim passion, curiosity, and creativity, not only for your children, but for yourself.”
About Stars: a family guide to the night sky by Adam Ford from the Roost Books website: “Who isn’t fascinated by the sheer size of the universe? Stars offers a straightforward guide to what we know and how we know it—from the Big Bang to star nurseries to the beginnings of life on planet Earth. Find out why you can’t draw a diagram of the solar system to scale, discover how gravity holds our planet together, and learn why we’re all made of stardust.” Included inside:
- season-by-season guide to stargazing
- double-sided star chart covering the northern and southern hemispheres
- pull-out activities, including “Test Your Eyesight” cards and a “What Do You Weigh on Other Planets?” spinning wheel, plus four sheets of stickers
