Gopher to the Rescue named Outstanding Science Tradebook!

by Kool Cat KC on 11/29/12

The National Science Teachers' Association and the Children's Book Council have named Gopher to the Rescue, A Volcano Recovery Story, an Outstanding Science Tradebook for Students.  Science tradebooks are books about science which are not text books. They normally tell a fun story while teaching science. This is exactly what Gopher does, he tells the story of how nature recovers after a volcanic eruption. Terry is VERY proud of this award. You can read all about it by visiting http://www.nsta.org/publications/ostb/ostb2013.aspx.

These are pictures of the scientists in the cave where a new species, Homo Nadeli, was discovered by two cavers. So many bones! The scientific work is being led by Dr. Lee Berger of the Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, South Africa. Terry's thanks to National Geographic for providing these pictures. This was a cover story in the October Nat Geo Magazine.
