I have a STEM kid. I know, I know. It’s the total “buzz word” lately, but it’s pretty true for Fox. He has little interest in learning to read (my English major heart is wincing in pain at that admission), but damn can that boy put together a puzzle in record time.
And because I’m trying really hard not to push my right-brain tendencies onto my child (only my leftist political views, sorry not sorry), I’ve done some research into children’s STEM books we can borrow from our library to satisfy his curiosity for all things volcano, flying, architecture, Titanic, and more.
Below is a list of some of our favorites. Please note, links to the books are affiliate links, which means if you click through and buy, I will receive a small percentage of the cost from Amazon, at no extra charge to you. There’s a blog law somewhere that states I have to admit that. But, honestly? Amazon has more money than God and can afford it.
10 Best STEM Books for Children
We also borrow and own quite a few nonfiction books from the National Geographic Kids series, too. Which means Fox is seriously hip on which planet is the hottest in our solar system, and mom gets to relive her days learning about the water cycle and plate tectonics. It’s a win-win for everyone, especially in the off chance my pipe-dream of winning Jeopardy still pans out one day.
Evaporation for 100, please, Alex.
