The Secret Power of Science and Art in Children’s Nonfiction Picture Books
One day last spring, Professor Donata Henry and I sat in a New Orleans coffee shop, talking about books and writing and education. She teaches various science courses at Tulane University with tremendous energy and commitment. I was fascinated by her innovative approaches to transferring knowledge. The conversation whirled and swirled from topic to topic. Then one of those magic moments happened: We discovered a mutual passion for children's nonfiction picture books about science, particularly science poetry.
