Many of you know that Subaru makes cars and crossovers. But you may not know that Subaru is in the book business too!
Every year Subaru teams up with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, one of the world’s largest general scientific society and the publisher of a number of reputable science journals. Together with Science Books & Film, the three decide which books should win the Prizes for Excellence in Science Books.
To determine which books make the cut, a couple standards are laid out. First of all, the books must present sound science. Secondly, the books must appeal to people of all ages.
The 2016 Prizes for Excellence in Science Books went to:
- A Chicken Followed Me Home! Questions and Answers About a Familiar Fowl, by Robin Page
- The Octopus Scientists: Exploring the Mind of a Mollusk, by Sy Montgomery
- How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction, by Beth Shapiro. Princeton
- A Kid’s Guide to Keeping Chickens, by Melissa Caughey
