They Just Know: Animal Instincts

It’s official–the new book is here–there were cupcakes and everything!

We all had an amazing time at the book launch party at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Thank you all for making it perfect! The snake making station was an especially big hit. Kids learned that instinctual behaviors are associated with different scale patterns and got to design their own snake species. They were all ssSssspectacularly colorful!
