About SimplyScience

Shirley Duke

Thanks for stopping by. I am taking a leave from blogging for the next year. My writing schedule has picked up, which is good, but I have to take some time off from the blog. I’ll keep you posted on the next big project which I’m currently working on and other things through the next year.


Welcome to you all. This blog is for anyone who loves books and wants to include more science and reading into their children’s literature and lessons.  I’ll review newly published books, along with some not so new, and suggest simple science ideas that can be incorporated into your lessons that can accompany the books I discuss. Join me each week for some science books I love with fresh ideas that can help you add more science to your library, home, or classroom activities.

I plan to continue blogging once a week, mostly so I can keep up with my writing and other projects. I’ll keep a reminder going on Nonfiction Monday and post on Wednesday of each week. I participate in STEM Friday, so check in there, too.

I’ll use new books and a few older ones, and I plan to range from kindergarten age to fifth grade on the activities. However, I occasionally hit the middle school range, too, because there are so many great science books.

I hope you’ll check in weekly and see if there is something you can use or to see some current books and activities.  I’d love to hear from you if you use an idea. Let me know how it worked!
