FC: In The Words of Rachel Carson

It was a depiction of ocean life as the creatures experienced it. | In 1937, Carson wrote an article, "Undersea," that was published in the Atlantic Monthly. Success with this article motivated Rachel to continue writing about nature and the environment.

It was a description about bats and their ability to "see" with sound waves, and the development of radar.

4: Rachel's third book, "The Edge of the Sea," was based on the way plants and animals of the sea depend on each other. | In 1956, Carson wrote "Help Your Child to Wonder." She wrote it in an effort to portray the world of nature to children. It was later published as a book, called The Sense of Wonder.
