Triassic Hall: Building the Triassic Exhibit from the Ground Up

New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science

This unique book brings to life the creation of a new exhibit at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. How did approximately 100 people go about creating a museum exhibit hall on the Triassic Period of earth history, its fossil record, and the lessons about biodiversity it teaches? Jaenet Guggenheim and Dr. Spencer Lucas worked on this book together. Through words and photographs, Jaenet has captured the complex process by which a natural history museum built a totally unique exhibit hall devoted to a critical juncture in the history of life.

Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory and author of the #1 bestseller Girling Up, puts her Ph.D. to work to talk to teen boys about the science and pressures of growing up male in today's world. A must-have book for all teenage boys!

Why does my voice crack like that? What should I eat to build muscle? How do I talk to someone I have a crush on? What do I do if someone calls me names or bullies me?

Growing from a boy to a man is no easy task. Bodies are changing, social circles are evolving, hair is appearing in places it never was before -- and on top of it all, there's the ever-present pressure to conform to the typical idea of what it means to be "manly" and masculine. But it's easier to do if you're armed with facts.

Using personal anecdotes as an overly observant mother of two boys and plenty of scientific information from her life as a neuroscientist, Mayim Bialik, PhD, star of The Big Bang Theory, talks directly to teen boys about what it means to grow from a boy to a man biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. Using the same cool, fun, and friendly tone that she took in Girling Up, Mayim takes boys--and their parents!--through the challenges and triumphs of Boying Up today.

In six sections (How Boys Bodies Work; How Boys Grow; How Boys Learn; How Boys Cope; How Boys Love; and How Boys Make a Difference), she takes a look at what it means for boys to come of age in today's world, how can they take control of their paths, and what can they do to help shape the types of futures they want for themselves.

Praise for Boying Up:

"A matter-of-fact mirror that reflects reality and respect, not bewildered embarrassment." --Kirkus Reviews

"Boying Up hits all the hot spots and should be included in tween and teen library collections." --VOYA
