Looking Back, Looking Forward
2018 is coming to an end, and we would like to ring in the New Year by sharing some of the amazing things we have accomplished here at Science Naturally, and some of the new exciting adventures we have to look forward to in 2019!
We have been working hard behind the scenes on a number of exciting new books coming in the next 14 months.
Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco (Spanish-language version of our popular book If My Mom Were a Platypus) will be available in Spanish starting in January of 2019! This fascinating look at life cycles portrays the normalcy of birth and breastfeeding and explores how mothers help 14 different mammals navigate the path from helpless infants to self-sufficient adults.
Out and About
We had so much fun at the fairs, conferences, and other events we participated in during 2018, and we are excited about even more in 2019! We will be attending many events, including the Haymaker STEAM Expo, the AAAS Annual Conference, and the Clippers SciFest SoCal! Want to come see us at an upcoming event? Check out our 'Come See Us' page for more information!
This year we partnered with Genius Games and started distributing some of their incredible early childhood STEM titles,including the My First Science Textbook Collection and the Science Wide Open Collection.
We also began offering our books through SEA Books & More (they are currently offering a 'buy one get one half-off' sale, so click the link to take advantage of this amazing offer!).
We were lucky enough to have some amazing interns in addition to adding some new staff, including a social media manager, to help with all our exciting projects coming in 2019! We even started this new blog!
We are excited about the new books coming your way for the new year! One of these new books (slated to publish March 2020) is entitled This is How I Grow.
This fun and informative book was illustrated by Wesley Davies, who did the back matter illustrations in our popular book Babies Nurse.
This Is How I Grow tells the story of eight different mammalian babies from habitats across the globe. Each vignette presents five facts about the animal’s birth, nursing, weaning, and the hunting and/or foraging skills that they must learn from their mother/community before they can be “all grown up".
Meeting Our Community!
This year was a great year for getting out to our community and sharing all of our amazing books and resources!
Perhaps most important of all was meeting so many of our amazing community members! 2018 was a year chock full of adventures and experiences for the staff at Science Naturally. Our amazing staff went all around the country - from California to New York - to conferences and expos to introduce our books to families, educators, and book lovers. We love getting out there and sharing our love of STEM, early education, and families.
We look forward to 2019 and the many new friends it will bring!
