I like that there are fun books available for children to understand STEM topics. Having books with simple vocabulary, explanation and images makes it easy to explore and learn. Here are a few STEM inspiring books that we found educational and fun.
Basher Science Engineering book written by Tom Jackson explains about the riveting world of buildings and machines in an easy to understand manner with lots of fun facts. It explains how engineers change things they find in nature to suit our needs from simple machines such as levers to spacecraft. It helps readers understand how things work. It is a wonderful book for adults to refer to, and explain topics and ideas such as gravity and blueprint.
The Lonely Planet Amazing Jobs book explores different jobs around the world. Children will enjoy opening over 50 flaps to discover and learn different facts related to different jobs mentioned in this book.
It explores jobs such as Gauchos, Vets that work in jungles of Central Africa, French Police officers that rollerblade around the city, flying doctors in Australia, Sherpas living near Mount Everest, Bollywood in India, and Rangers in Yellowstone National Park. This colourful book with lots of images makes the reader take a closer look, as it asks to find specific things in each page.
What Can I Be? by Ann Rand and Ingrid Fiksdahl King is an interesting book that combines shapes and colours. It challenges the readers to think and use their imagination on what things can fit the combination of the shapes and colours.
For example, "I'm round, I'm red, What Can You Make of Me?" then on the next page there are beautiful drawings that mentions apples and lollipops. Then it prompts the readers to extend their thinking on what other objects can fit these characteristics. We like how this simple book encourages the readers to explore, think outside the box, be creative and admire their surroundings which are made out of simple shapes.
