Science, Naturally! is an independent press committed to increasing science and math literacy by exploring and demystifying topics. We create products filled with interesting facts, important insights, and key connections in math and science. We try to make potentially intimidating topics intriguing and accessible to scientists of all ages.
All our book content correlates to the national science and math standards. Our books have all received the coveted “Recommends” designation from the National Science Teachers Association and our math books have been endorsed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. These award-winning books have been featured on NPR’s “Science Friday with Ira Flatow,” and have been recommended by Science News, Science Magazine, the American Association of the Advancement of Science, the Carnegie Academy for Science Education and numerous parenting organizations.
These books are some of the most engaging nonfiction books I have ever read! They correlate so well with our science curriculum and the Common Core State Standards. The reason we love them is because they have real-world applications. With Mississippi adopting the new Common Core State Standards, using nonfiction texts is very important. Science, Naturally!’s books are an excellent asset to our teachers' resource libraries!
I was particularly blown away by If My Mom Were A Platypus. The Activity Guide and Hands-On Demonstrations are so teacher friendly! I cannot say enough positive things about this material!

This app is geared towards kids ages 11 to 15, yet it is fun—and challenging—for the whole family.
