It was Science Literacy Week last week, a Canada wide celebration of science and science books.

*collapses in heap*
I visited one school and three branches of the Halifax Public Libraries. Altogether, nearly 300 kids (and a few grown ups) helped me rock out to “What Does the Fox Say?”. Then, we compared videos of wild and domesticated foxes, and did a live human-animal communication experiment with special guest dogs from Therapeutic Paws of Canada.
It. Was. Awesome.
I got sick about three seconds later. Totally worth it.
