Have you stopped by AAAS Book Talks on SB&F Online lately? If not, now is a great time to check out this feature. We’ve just added three new interviews with the 2011 SB&F Prize winning authors and illustrators. You can listen to interviews with the author and illustrator of the Magic School Bus series, Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. Their most recent installment of the series, The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge was our Children’s Science Picture Book winner this year. Hear straight from these two iconic authors about how they work together, where to find secret drawings in the books by Joanna, and what’s next for this dynamic duo. We also interviewed Loree Griffin Burns and Ellen Harasimowicz, the author and photographer of The Hive Detectives: Chronicle of a Honeybee Catastrophe. Loree and Ellen tell us about their adventures around the globe researching this book and their upcoming book on citizen science. Plus hear from hands-on science book author Sean Connolly. Sean made the trek across the pond from England to celebrate his prize-winning book, The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science.
