I vividly remember pouring for hours over Stephen Biesty’s Incredible Cross Sections as a kid, completely fascinated by the inner workings of an ocean liner, an oil rig, the Empire State Building, and many more buildings and machines. That book, and many others like it, opened my eyes to the ways things work in the world around us. Each book would open a little more of the world, and I just wanted to learn more. Today, I am carrying that love of learning on to our kiddos by purposely making engaging, entertaining, and fascinating books available to them.
To make it easy to do the same thing in your house, I’ve put together a list of 35+ STEM books for your family to enjoy! Check out the list below, and click the links to order any of the books from Amazon.
