A Call for Ideas

I'm working on a series of posts relating books and science activities for coming weeks and months.

While I've been gathering titles for a while now, I'd love to get your input to extend my list.

I'm largely looking for titles of good quality picture books that have some theme or aspect that could be tied into a science lesson.  (For this project, I'm not looking for books that are overt in their science message, for example the Magic School Bus books.)

Please send me your titles, either as a comment on this post, or you can email adventures{dot}in{dot}science{at}gmail{dot}com with your thoughts.

If you have a science lesson in mind to go with the book, feel free to include that (if you're willing).

If you don't have a precise lesson in mind, but have a general idea of what could be done with your title, feel free to include that.

If you don't have any idea of what could be done with your book but just have a general feeling that the book lends itself to the possibility of a science lesson, pass it along.  I'm happy to try to match up books with activities.

At this point, I'm largely focused on picture books, but if you have some young adult novels in mind, you're welcome to pass them along and I'll work my way through them as well. 

I'm looking forward to hearing your suggestions and encountering some new books!
