Happy Book Birthday to DEEP, DEEP DOWN & GIVEAWAYS!
Video Posted on Updated on
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I wish you health, joy, compassion, and of course, love.
January is a big month for me. My new STEM book DEEP, DEEP, DOWN: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench illustrated by Juan Calle and published by Capstone Editions, a Capstone imprint, sailed into our universe on January 1! This book was a labor of love, and combines my two biggest passions: science and poetry.
Here’s a summary: Deep, deep down, at the very bottom of the ocean, lies a secret world. Through lyrical narration, this spare-text STEM picture book takes readers on a journey to a place very few humans have ever been–the Mariana Trench. The imagined voyage debunks scary myths about this mysterious place with surprising and beautiful truths about life at Earth’s deepest point. DEEP, DEEP, DOWN: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench shows a vibrant world far below, and teaches readers how interconnected our lives are to every place on the planet.
And….I’m kicking it off with 2 awesome giveaways!
