From NSTA Newsletter: NSTA and the CBC have selected the annual list of Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K–12. This year's list includes books by well-known authors like Seymour Simon and Nic Bishop, focuses on some of the most primal concepts (what does an animal do on the first day of its life?), and even explains why the vampire myth persists in our society. The books on this list feature captivating stories of human achievement—like those of Rachel Carson or the diverse investigators in What Color Is My World? They combine science and engineering, like the story of the Mighty Mars Rovers. They feature outstanding art, lyric poetry, and plenty of ideas for hands-on activity. These great books have something to grab the minds and hearts of students at every level. So once again, we present a list of the year's Outstanding Science Trade Books with pride and optimism. They have the potential to enrich and inspire, as they convey the best science content. Please share!
Teachers, parents, librarians, and anyone else who loves reading with children will want to get their hands on these titles.
