Not only is this a wonderful resource that can be used in the home or school setting, the author reminds us that it is about the process and not the product, that it is okay to make mistakes, encourage them to tinker, and give them the freedom to be innovative.
I am a big advocate of having Non Fiction books readily available for children to read. They are great learning tools that often don’t make the reader feel like they are learning because they are having so much fun, yes learning can be fun.
Without a doubt this picture filled book of facts about awesome animals will be running off the shelves. I am serious, this book is not only packed full of interesting information but its also a colourful wonderland that will have your least enthusiastic reader turning the pages wanting to learn more.
DK continually creates outstanding informative books for readers, and How to be a Scientist is one of the best yet. There is so much to love about this book and it all begins with the bright cover that instantly makes you interested in what other exciting things may be in the book.
Each of these books are a little treasure trove of information and facts. As I turned each page I was quit excited what I found. Facts and activities that are engaging for children but also a scientific learning experience.
It is these early positive introductions to STEM that is helping produce young, enthusiastic scientists.
