Jan Adkins tease is a picture above but here are his words:
"Squeezing a good story into 400 words for a Nonfiction Minute is nearly the hardest thing I've ever done. But our readers are worth it."
Alexandra Siy’s Tease:
"Do you like taking tests? Probably not, but the Raindrop Quiz is actually fun and informative, so let's begin: What do YOU think is the shape of a falling raindrop? (No cheating, please!)"
Andrea Warren's Tease:
"Whatever I'm reading, when I find myself wondering about something that's related, I check it out. My curiosity has resulted in a couple of books and several of the Nonfiction Minutes that I've written."
Vicki Cobb's Tease:
"I went to a potato chip factory to learn about their problems for keeping their chips fresh. It’s all about the money, ka-ching, full STEM ahead!"

"Can you imagine what it would be like to have to find and kill prey in order to feed yourself and your family? That's what wolves have to do."
