About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Don’t feel much like celebrating this year. Mostly just staying home and doing nothing. No fireworks either. Maybe watch the neighbors blow up the neighborhood.

      We didn’t do the traditional celebrating either — no parades or fireworks. Instead, we spent the holiday weekend taking the 10-year-old to see Graceland. They’ve built quite the complex around it.
