My Books

Amazing Plant Powers: How Plants Fly, Fight, Hide, Hunt, & Change the World shows readers the ways that plants use stems, roots, leaves, thorns, flowers, seeds, and other structures to adapt to the environment they live in. Co-author Andrew Schuerger has a Ph.D. in plant pathology (and is my husband!)

For reviews and project ideas, please visit this page on my web site.




Jack & the Hungry Giant Eat Right with MyPlate begins the same way as the traditional fairytale. Instead of eating Jack, the giant cooks him a healthy meal. The book is a fun introduction to the MyPlate nutrition program...the illustrations show Jack surrounded by huge blueberries, carrots, cheese, and more. For more images from the book, visit this page on my web site.




Here is a list of all my books with links to their pages. Each book’s page has a sample illustration, summary, reviews, project ideas, and some have downloadable activity pages and/or video trailers.
