Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story

Join Jojo and her family counting bats as citizen scientists in the soon-to-be-released book Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story!

Soon-to-be-released: Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story

It won’t be in stores until the end of February, but you can read — and listen to — a free digital review copy today.  The story, written  by Philadelphia-area author Anna Forrester and illustrated by Susan Detwiler, encourages kids to get involved in citizen science and make it their own.

Forrester worked with Katie Gillies, Director of the Imperiled Species Program at Bat Conservation International, and Catherine J. Hibbard, White-nose Syndrome Communications Leader with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, to verify the accuracy of the information in the book.

Bat Count: A Citizen Science Story will be available in bookstores in February 2017 in  hardcover and paperback in English, and in paperback i nSpanish. Preorders are being accepted now and will ship as soon as the books arrive.

About the Author

Jenny Cutraro

Jenny Cutraro

Every report card Jenny brought home from elementary school included the comment "Is too talkative during class," a comment she translates as "enjoys communicating with her classmates." Today, she’s channeled that love of talking, combined with a lifelong love of science, into a career as a science communication and engagement professional. As an Editorial Project Director at WGBH in Boston, Jenny created resources for the Emmy-nominated PBS KIDS ecosystem science program Plum Landing. She also led numerous workshops and presentations on integrating digital resources into informal and outdoor learning settings. She is an active member of the National Association of Science Writers and former director of their internship program at the AAAS annual meeting, as well as member of theCOPUS (Coalition for the Public Understanding of Science) Advisory Council.
