Beavers: Radical Rodents and Ecosystem Engineers is one of just 28 books selected by the National Science Teaching Association and the Children’s Book Council for their 2022 list of Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K–12. The winners were chosen from books published throughout the United States and Canada over the past 12 months.
The NSTA–CBC list was announced on Dec. 7, 2021, and will be published in the February 2022 issues of Science and Children, Science Scope, and The Science Teacher. At the National Science Teaching Association’s annual conference, NSTA Presidential Awardee educators will share strategies for using each of these books in the classroom. Last spring, the Children’s Book Council chose Beavers for its May 2021 Hot Off the Press list.
Beavers is also on the 2021-2022 BC Books for BC Schools, put out by the Association of Book Publishers of BC. The titles on this list are selected by teacher-librarians, who consider the books’ relevance to school curricula. The subject tags for Beavers in the catalogue include Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts.
