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.
