NSTA's Best STEM Books K-12 for 2017

The National Science Teachers Association unveils its inaugural list of “Best STEM Books K-12.” This list -- selected by volunteer educators and assembled in cooperation with the Children’s Book Council -- provides recommendations to teachers, librarians, parents, and caregivers about the best trade books with STEM content for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Reading science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) trade books is the perfect way for students to build literacy skills while learning STEM content. Building upon a strong legacy of recommending science trade books, the Best STEM Books K-12 project is a joint venture of several organizations, including the American Society for Engineering Education, the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, the National Science Teachers Association, the Society of Elementary Presidential Awardees, and the Children’s Book Council. In addition to the website, the list will appear in the March 2017 issues of NSTA’s elementary, middle level, and high school journals for teachers.
