Chemicals in everyday life

March 06th, 2020


Rowena Rae wrote the kidlit book, Chemical World: Science in Our Daily Lives (Orca $19.95 ) that explores some of the chemicals people use or come into contact with in their daily lives. It invites young readers to notice what’s around them and to ask questions about how they use things and what they eat every day that can affect their health. Rae worked as a biologist before becoming a freelance writer, editor and children’s author. Rae also co-authored with Elspeth Rae, Meg and Greg: a Duck in a Sock (Orca $14.95) the first book in a series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read and an experienced reader. The stories have special features that help a child with dyslexia, or another language-based learning difficulty, find reading success. She lives in Victoria. 978-1-45982-157-6 Chemical World/978-1-45982-490-4 Meg and Greg
