“Hands-on” Picture Book Reading with Durham Children’s Author Melissa Rooney @ Regulator Book Shop
Jun 30 all-day

Created in honor of Dr. Seuss and his concerns regarding Sustainability, “The Fate of the Frog” combines playful illustrations and playful verse that is as fun to read aloud as it is to listen to. Using an engaging plot told in Seuss-like anapestic tetrameter, “The Fate of the Frog” addresses the importance of water resources as well as other K-2 curricula topics. The Regulator Bookshop is hosting a free event with the local author, including a Family Q&A/discussion, reading of “The Fate of the Frog”, and make-and-take plush tadpole craft using 100% recycled materials.

Melissa Rooney is a Ph.D. Chemist, Scientific Editor, and Author of the Eddie the Electron children’s book series ( She is also an Associate Supervisor for her county’s Soil and Water Conservation District. She has conducted hands-on STEM-related children’s events at The Science Museum of Western Virginia, The Virginia Museum of Natural Sciences, The Virginia Transportation Museum, The Danville Science Center, The UNC Science Expo, and numerous public schools and libraries across NC and VA. She believes that “the sooner we expose our children to ‘complicated’ scientific ideas, the less intimidated they will be by such subject matter in the future. Whether or not they understand everything is beside the point. What’s important is whether or not they are interested.”

It’s more important than ever to encourage scientific literacy and objectivity in the education of our youth and to introduce them to, engage them in, and prevent them from losing the Magic and Creativity that is Nature and Science. In The Fate of the Frog, Stacy and Melissa accomplish all these.
