VAMPIRES AND LIGHT out now!

It's official. My newest book is in the world! VAMPIRES AND LIGHT (Capstone Press) hit virtual bookshelves a couple days ago. Official release date is January 28 for hardback and February 1 for paperback.

Here's a description from my publisher:

"Learning about light doesn’t have to be scary. Join vampires as they uncover the science of light and the electromagnetic spectrum. You’ll give your knowledge of light a boost with a monster dose of humor."

Written for third and fourth graders (with an interest level up to ninth grade), this comic book-style book explains what light is (energy), how light works (through waves), the characteristics of light, and how light makes life on Earth possible.

You can order it in hardback and paperback from these retailers:

  9. What a great concept, Jody. The more we can teach kids that science isn't scary, the better off we all will be.
