Praise for Spit Nests, Puke Power, and Other Brilliant Bird Adaptations by Laura Perdew

School Library Journal
"A cool science title for younger readers to learn about bird adaptation. Educators can use this text in the classroom; many STEAM lessons could be inspired by these funky adaptations."

Praise for Extinction by Laura Perdew

National Science Teachers Association Recommends
"This book uses the concept of extinction to teach a little chemistry, a little climatology, paleontology, biology (biodiversity), ecology, and a lot of geology. The science information is historical and current, drawing on three-dimensional learning, incorporating science practices to determine what factors affect extinction in general and specifically. The integration of concepts help bring the science alive and relevant."
