To encourage kids to engage in citizen science projects.

This enchanting, illustrated book shows how even kids can be part of scientific exploration and collection. Authors Dr. Neeti Bathala, an ecologist, and Jennifer Keats Curtis tell the tale of a young, adventurous citizen scientist and her dog. Each summer, Leena and her mom volunteer to count horseshoe crabs under the light of a full moon. Along with Bobie, their dog, the two volunteers spend their evening collecting data on horseshoe crabs. The crabs have come to mate and lay their eggs on the beach near their home. Read along with your own kids, and learn valuable facts about these ancient, important animals. Once you’re finished, take a look at how you can get involved in horseshoe crab citizen science and conservation efforts.
