About this title

Synopsis:

What are tardigrades? Where do they live? What temperatures can they withstand? Did they really survive the vacuum of space? You no longer have to do a time consuming web search to find the answers. Get the facts about tardigrades all in one place – the Tardigrade Quiz and Fact Book. What’s nice about this book is that learning is fun because a quiz helps your memory retain information. And the pictures help you remember the answers. Imagine talking to a judge at a science fair with confidence because you know all about tardigrades. Your conversations with friends and family will not just leave them impressed, but they’ll want to hear more. The questions will not be about tardigrades but about you. How did YOU get interested in tardigrades? Did you ever see one? Do you have any right now as pets? As a teacher, don’t be surprised if colleagues ask you to give talks in their classrooms, or if they invite you to get-togethers and parties because you are suddenly so interesting. Can you imagine a parent’s pride when their kid comes home using words like “Fahrenheit,” “spore,” and “ultraviolet radiation?” “I love the idea of building a quiz into a science book like this. The reader is asked a question, if they get it right they get a detailed explanation of why they are right. If they should happen to get it wrong, the author will either throw in a funny joke or offer additional information to help the reader reconsider their answer. I think this is a great way for kids and adults to learn new content.” -J McCullen “I gave this a five star rating because of the information presented. I had no idea Tardigrades were so resilient. Just as suggested by the author, the answers can be very funny yet remain informative. The facts are presented in an entertaining way. Don’t be surprised if your kids laugh out loud. If you read any books this year this one must be among them.” -Dan Holloway
