Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This book introduces readers to the idea of citizen science and then offers them a wealth of research projects to choose from. The first third of the book is devoted to explaining citizen science, why it is important, and how it makes a difference in research and the community at large. (There is even a chapter solely devoted to how the library can support those interested in participating in citizen-science projects.) The majority of the book is then devoted to a directory of citizen-science projects from around the world. Projects are arranged by seven overarching categories, including animals and outer space. Each project entry lists its title and website; a brief description, along with the age range for participants; the time frame for when it takes place (many are seasonal); the region where it takes place; and whether there is a fee involved to participate. A resource list of adult and children’s books is included at the conclusion of each section. A worthwhile guide for parents and educators, this book would be a welcome addition in school and public libraries. --Maren Ostergard

"This guide encourages families to get outside and work together. Whether looking for amphibians or monarchs, monitoring shorebirds, or observing mushrooms, there is an activity for everyone!" —Green Teacher
