What's in Your Pocket?: Collecting Nature's Treasures -- Heather L. Montgomery - Hardcover


Charles Darwin, George Washington Carver, and Jane Goodall were once curious kids with pockets full of treasures

When you find something strange and wonderful, do you put it in your pocket? Meet nine scientists who, as kids, explored the great outdoors and collected treasures: seedpods, fossils, worms, and more. Observing, sorting, and classifying their finds taught these kids scientific skills--and sometimes led to groundbreaking discoveries. Author Heather Montgomery has all the science flair of a new Bill Nye. Book includes the Heather's tips for responsible collecting.
