Overview
Scientists Get Dressed by award-winning author Deborah Lee Rose zooms in on what scientists do based on what they put on to work. Kids will be fascinated and surprised to learn that scientists wear not only white lab coats, but helmets, jackets, boots, goggles, fins, spacesuits, waders, harnesses, and gloves of all kinds in this photo-filled, 10 x 10 picture book (the differing gloves of volcano scientists, water scientists, brain surgeons, and avian/raptor scientists is fairly amazing reading). All science settings are here too: high forest canopy, dark bat caves; hazards like germs, chemicals and the Sun's dangerous radiation; volcanic lava fields, warm ocean waves, frigid polar ice caps, beehives, and beyond Earth's atmosphere. Oh, and also standard science labs.
 
“Starting with Mae Jemison on the cover, Rose puts an unusually diverse gallery of researchers on the figurative runway…An eye-opening catalog of STEM wear.”— Kirkus Reviews
 
“Librarians should budget to get this title. An excellent resource to introduce STEM careers and teach curious minds about — School Library Journal
