They’re creepy and they’re crawly, mysterious and jolly, they’re altogether essential, to the family of Earth! Science teacher and author, Howard Mize, brings the tiniest bugs and the importance of forests together in this beautifully illustrated story about the harmony of our ecology and environment. Everything Has Its Place is a book about life and the connections that all organisms share that will encourage discussion and learning about the world in which we all live.
What People Say
As an author, parent, and former science teacher, Everything Has Its Place works for me on every level. It pairs solid science with endearing illustrations in a way that will entertain while informing and opening discussions that will surely be carried over into everyday observations long after the book is placed back on the shelf. Best of all, it will help kids (and perhaps even parents!) overcome the “yuck factor” that too often inhibits a child’s natural curiosity by showing how interconnected creatures are with one another, and thus with us. It even has a fun summary and lists references, elements all too often missing in children’s books. This one will become a favorite. —Danny Kuhn, Award Winning Autho
