Reading is one of the most important aspects of a young child's development. Access to a variety of books filled with math and science concepts gives a child the opportunity to experience the world around them in new ways! STEM books can be very helpful to budding young science and math lovers by helping them understand the process of scientific discovery and find ways to integrate STEM into their day-to-day lives. By creating a STEM library for your kids at home, you will encourage them to find new ways of understanding and exploring the world.

Here at Science, Naturally we love giving families the opportunity to come together and create a fun-loving educational experience together. We put together our own list of books that you and your young ones can enjoy at home in your own STEM Library!
