What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A NSTA/CBC Best STEM Book The curiosity of the first African American entomologist Charles Henry Turner–a scientist who studied bugs–shines in this nonfiction picture book, which showcases his ideas and discoveries about ants, bees, and other insects. Charles Henry Turner’s mind itched with questions. Fascinated by animals, bugs, and crustaceans, Turner studied their lives. When books didn’t answer his questions, he researched, experimented, and looked for answers on his own, even when faced with racial prejudice. Author Janice Harrington and artist Theodore Taylor III capture the life of this scientist and educator, highlighting his unstoppable curiosity and his passion for insects and biology. The extensive back matter includes an author’s note, timeline, bibliography, source notes, and archival images.
