Book Birthday! INTO THE DEEP

Today Into the Deep: Science, Technology, and the Quest to Save the Ocean celebrates its book birthday. I’m so excited that you finally get to read about all the fabulous scientists I was privileged to meet. Their work is fascinating, and I appreciate their enthusiasm (and their patience as they explained their research). I’ll be profiling some of them in my social media in the coming days, so be on the lookout for that.

A resource page for the book is forthcoming—today or tomorrow, depending on how fast I type! This book is available in library binding and on Kindle/Nook.


“This title could serve as a rich source for topical research or inspiration to students interested in pursuing studies in science. Highly recommended for all elementary and middle school libraries.”
~School Library Journal (starred review)

“Written by an experienced and passionate STEM nonfiction author, technical specificity is deftly balanced with engaging writing in this title that is perfect for homework and leisure exploration. A captivating and well-researched deep dive into oceanography.”
~Kirkus Reviews

“Each chapter not only explains how climate and other changes are affecting the topic but highlights ongoing scientific studies trying to understand these problems and generate solutions. …Scientist profiles, photos of the scientists in action, graphs, and other visuals throughout add context and relevance. For STEM collections focused on oceanography and real-world applications.”

I’m pleased to announce the debut of Earth Day and the Environmental Movement: Standing Up for Earth, available today from Twenty First Century Books. The book has received several really lovely reviews, and I’m thrilled to see it finally out in the world. I’ll be adding a tab to the top of this page filled with resources to accompany the book. I would love to keep adding to this list, so if you see a tool or resource I’ve missed, please contact me.

Many thanks go to the entire team at Twenty First Century Books for their support and for creating a beautiful book out of the pile of words I sent them.

I am available to visit your school or organization to speak about Earth Day and things we can all do to help the environment. I’ll be adding more specifics in the coming weeks.

Here are some of the things reviewers are saying about Earth Day and the Environmental Movement.

“The book, despite its slim size, successfully covers people who have made an impact or are influencing the conversation. But even more significant are the two additions to every chapter: an example of youth activism and an example of the intersectionality of the environment, race, and justice. ­VERDICT The book, used across science classes or in social justice circles, has a place in public and school libraries—not just as a part of an Earth Day display but as a relevant resource about a dire issue facing the global population.”

~School Library Journal
