It’s got to be hard to simplify any person’s life into a picture book. There are ups and downs and whole years you’d have to leave out. But adding extra information in author notes helps a lot, and if a reader wants to find out more, they can always use a life story to launch into chapter book level biographies and go on from there.
Spring after Spring brings you right into the life of Rachel Carson, her lifelong love of nature, and the early movement to care for the environment. It’s colorful and informative and has you thinking about the questions scientists ask and how “regular” people can ask those same questions. Super.
