'Books In Bloom' Shares Botany In Children's Literature

May 12, 2014

Children’s books are full of fantasy and wonder, but we don’t often think of them as being full of science. Now, two professors at Saint Michael’s college have teamed up to write a book about biology in children’s literature. Education professor Valerie Bang-Jensen and biology professor Mark Lubkowitz are co-founders of the college's Teaching Gardens program, and their new title is called Books in Bloom.  VPR's Jane Lindholm sat down with the authors recently to talk about their unique collaboration.
