About For Books Scientists Get Dressed Review
"From head to toe, and in between, scientists get dressed for the work they do and the places they do it!"In Scientists Get Dressed by award-winning author Deborah Lee Rose, stunning and engaging ""you are there"" photos and fun-fact filled text let readers discover how scientists suit up, gown up, gear up, even dress up in costume to do their jobs. Young readers (and listeners) meet real scientists facing the challenges of making new discoveries, saving lives and saving our planet--whether they're floating weightless in space or swimming with endangered whale sharks, digging out snow samples from a frozen glacier or gathering hot lava from a burning volcano, rescuing a wild bald eagle or operating on a human brain.Kids of all ages love to role play through dress up. Through the unique lens of what scientists wear--including many photos never before published--Scientists Get Dressed inspires kids to explore STEM in new ways, and to imagine themselves getting dressed for exciting and important work.What do scientists wear? Kids will be fascinated and surprised to learn that scientists wear not only white lab coats but helmets, jackets, boots, goggles, fins, spacesuits, waders, harnesses and gloves of all kinds. Even young children know gloves keep their hands warm--but for scientists, gloves make their work possible and safe. Volcano scientists wear cotton gloves that won't melt near burning lava. Water scientists wear insulating gloves to stay warm and dry in frozen streams. Brain surgeons wear tight, thin gloves that flex with every movement. Raptor scientists wear gloves of stuff stronger than steel, to guard themselves from an eagle's ripping talons and beak.Scientists Get Dressedteaches young readers how the right clothing and gear help scientists do their extraordinary work in hard to reach places like the high forest canopy and dark bat caves, and protect them from hazards like germs, chemicals and the Sun's dangerous radiation. From labs to volcanic lava fields, from warm ocean waves to frigid polar ice caps, from beehives to beyond Earth's atmosphere, Scientists Get Dressed zooms in on what scientists do, how they do it and why it matters.
