SCIENCE STARTS WITH WONDER

BRINGING STEM CONCEPTS TO LIFE THROUGH LITERATURE

 
Leslie Barnard Booth Children's Book Author

WRITER, READER, TEACHER

I write STEM-focused children’s literature that celebrates children’s expansive imaginations and honors their diverse experiences. I've contributed poetry, fiction and nonfiction to award-winning children's magazines, and I hold an MS in education and an MFA in creative writing, both from the University of Oregon. My nonfiction picture book debut, A STONE IS A STORY, is slated for publication with Simon & Schuster's McElderry Books in fall 2022. A STONE IS A STORY takes young readers on a deep time journey through the phases of the rock cycle and answers the question, "Where do rocks come from?"
