Outstanding Science Trade Book for Children chosen by the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council

There’s always something happening at Crawdad Creek.

That’s what Lizzie and Michael call the stream that runs behind their house. Come pan for gold, hunt for fossils, find an arrowhead in the mud or a crayfish under a stone. Watch whirligig beetles and water striders skate across the water, teasing the fish below, and count the turtles sunning themselves on moss-covered logs. Follow tracks along the bank, then sit in quiet amazement as deer, raccoons, and other animals visit the creek. There’s a wild and beautiful world here waiting to be discovered. Take the time to look!
