Nancy's Bookshelf: Mike Graf Explores Science In National Parks
Many of weatherman Mike Graf’s children’s books are trips to National Parks with a fictional family. In his latest book, Scientists in National Parks: Sequoia and Kings Canyon, readers learn how the giant sequoias were discovered, logged, and how they have since been protected.
When eagles recently adopted a hawklet, eagle-watcher Terri Lhuillier was consulted. In March of 2012 Terri was interviewed on Nancy’s Bookshelf about her children’s book, The Unstoppable Eagles.
Mike Graf is a part time television weathercaster and a former elementary school teacher and university professor. He has shared his writing and national park experiences with children and teachers at many schools. Graf has published more than ninety fiction and nonfiction books for children and teachers.
