I hope by now you have heard about my pet project of the moment: #scicommchall! For #scicommchall, I give myself (and quite a few other people by now) monthly challenges related to trying out new science communication formats. And this month, we are doing science communication books for kids! (For more instructions, see #scicommchall’s post. And everybody is welcome to join!).
My book deals with learning to observe where the wind is coming from (English version at the end of this post, too).
I think it turned out quite nicely!
I did struggle a little with the very short format — only six pages inside the book, plus a cover — but quite liked the challenge of having to come to the point.
The flag on the cover, in case you were wondering, is that of my hometown Hamburg.
I hope this book is actually useful and fun for kids (I did include some kids’ humor, or at least I tried ;-))
And I know what I would include if I wasn’t too lazy to re-draw the images: A question about on which side of some kind of structure one would sit down if one wanted shelter from the wind. Bummer I forgot to include that!
Anyway, here is the download (German & English). Please let me know what you think, I’d love to get some feedback!
