Kids’ science author offers free online events

There’s something special about learning science from someone who’s passionate about it. And Heather L. Montgomery is about as passionate as they come.

When Heather talks about bugs or snakes or other unusual animals, she absolutely lights up, and her enthusiasm is contagious. I know this because I know Heather personally. She and I are both authors of children’s books, and we’ve talked about our writing lots of times. When Heather tells a bug story, it’s riveting.

Ordinarily, Heather travels around visiting schools, sharing her passion for living things, and teaching students about science and writing. With schools closed, she’s offering three free virtual events.

  1. Author reading. Heather reads from her book, Something Rotten: A Fresh Look at Roadkill in a series of YouTube videos. Recommended for 3rd grade and up. (Videos available through the end of June.)
  2. Write Like a Scientist. Heather teaches the similarities between the scientific process and the writing process. Offered via Zoom on April 17, 2020, at 2 p.m. Eastern. Recommended for grades 2 through 6. Registration required.
  3. Bug Hunt. Heather will dive into some curious aspects of insect moms and dads, from her book Bugs Don’t Hug. June 9 at 2 p.m. Eastern on Instagram’s “True Stuff Tuesdays.” Recommended for grades pre-K through 2.
