I’m Alison Pearce Stevens. Thanks for stopping by my site!

As a writer for kids, I wear two hats—I’m a science writer by day and a spinner of tall nature and science tales by night (actually, in the wee hours of the morning—I’m an early bird). I’ve got lots of fun stuff here for kids, parents, and teachers. Click on any of the links above to find out more!
