“Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, shall all be saved.”

—Jane Goodall


Biodiversity is also a Junior Library Guild selection (May 2019)…so happy!

I am honored to announce that Biodiversity earned a starred review from Booklist (April 2019):

“Nomad applies its dependable activity-book format to the new Built It Environmental Science series (4 titles). Here biodiversity is placed under the microscope—sometimes literally—in a text that makes daunting concepts, such as evolution, levels of biodiversity (genetic, species, or ecosystem), and why biodiversity matters, easy to understand without sacrificing scientific precision. . .By book’s end, readers will truly understand what biodiversity is, its importance to the health of the planet, and humans’ impact on the complex natural systems where it thrives.”
