Stump the Libarian: A Need for Speed!

Hello again!  Jill & Liz of KDL’s Stump the Librarian Podcast are here once again to answer your challenging questions. In this fact-tastic episode, Liz first talks about super speedy cheetahs. How many spots do you suppose a cheetah has? Jill dives underwater to discuss the amazing world of sea stars. We learn exactly how much of its body a sea star can regenerate. What’s your guess? Jill also talks about a really cool art book and Liz recommends a STEM-centered story about a girl and her robot. This podcast is a wonderful, whirlwind adventure—with jokes!
