Dress Like a Scientist Day, cover illustration

Read the fully illustrated book online!

As a kid, I thought that all scientists dressed in a white coat and goggles, ready to mix chemicals and use fancy equipment in a lab. I didn’t realize that in playing outdoors, catching insects, and asking questions, I was doing science. Now as a field biologist, I am constantly inspired by the natural curiosity in young kids. I hope to help kids see the scientist in themselves by showing them that there is more than one way to be a scientist, and encouraging their curiosity.​

Many thanks to my husband for helping bring this story to life!
