The STEM book train keeps chugging along with these books published in July 2019.
Pumpus Has a Growing Idea!
The best children books spark the imagination, that creative spirit that kids have. This book aspires to do that, by having readers learn about Mr. Pumpus and his problem solving skills.
How to Be a Coder: Learn to Think Like a Coder with Fun Activities
Learning to code can open many opportunities for fun (now) and jobs (later). This book allows kids to learn coding concepts without having to spend time in front of a screen. Designed with kids aged 7-9 in mind, it demonstrates loops, project planning, functions, and more using crafting activities.
A Place for Pluto
For many of us, Pluto was planet when we are kid. So no wonder Pluto (and us) are shocked when he is no longer allowed in the planet club. In the book Pluto (and the reader) learn about comets, asteroids, meterors, and dwarf planets (Pluto’s new group). Not only STEM-related, the book helps kids learn about acceptance and self-discovery.
Audrey the Amazing Inventor
Audrey fancies herself an inventor: she’s made egg collectors, jam dispensers, cat washers (!!!), and more. After watching all of her inventions fail, she is close to giving up. But kind words and perseverance allow her to try one more time. Audrey is an inspiration for embracing your creative spirit.
I’m Trying to Love Math
I’m Trying to Love Math is not a how-to-do-math book. It’s more of a I’m-not-so-sure-about-math book. So, it tries to show all the different ways people use math in everyday life (e.g., music and baking).
Small World tells the story of Nanda, an African-American girl who eventually becomes an astronaut. But first, she learns about the world and its many shapes: the circle of her mother’s arms, wheels, fractals, and more.
Living Fossils: Clues to the Past
Some animals have evolved to the point where they are not very similar to their ancestors, but others have barely evolved at all. Caroline Arnold explores those animals (e.g., horseshoe crab, dragonfly, and Hula painted frog) in her latest book.
Bears Makes the Best Math Buddies
The latest in the “Bears Make the Best” series, this book has Adelaide trying to convince her teacher to let Bear be her math buddy in class.
