STEAM education encouraging DK books and Giveaway

We find having books that support STEAM education at home and in classrooms, help children learn fun facts and gain general knowledge. For example, when reading a book such as the Human Body! makes us understand the functions of our body parts, appreciate, and take care of our body. By reading the book Elements, we will be able to better understand how things come together and function, for example the elements Hydrogen and Oxygen combine to make water.
Human Body! by Smithsonian is an ultimate guide to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. This encyclopedia includes astonishing, 3-D artworks, offering a fascinating view of every part of the body from the skull to the heart and lungs to the joints and muscles.

It has computer-generated 3-D imagery to show the body as we have never seen before. This book supports STEM education initiatives, making it easy for children and adults to understand body systems and structures. It shows the how the body looks, and visually explains how the body works using engaging text, facts and figures. 

It is fun and amazing to read how our body works to fight disease, and about all the amazing gifts from God in our system that we sometimes take for granted. Did you know there are three trillion cells in our body with specific roles and the cells constantly divide to make new cells to allow the body to grow and repair. Human Body! is the perfect family reference on this subject.
Everything in nature is made out of substances we call elements. There are 118 elements with unique chemical and physical properties. It is important for everyone to have general knowledge of certain element, as we may come across these in our everyday life, as we use them to make many things. For example, fluorine is an element in our toothpaste that help toughens our teeth, and crystals are the elements found inside microchips that operate our gadgets and phones.  

The Elements Book is cataloged by type, and each element's properties and atomic structure is explained. More than 1,000 full-color photographs showcase the natural forms of each element, as well as a wide range of unexpected everyday objects in which it is found, to make them relevant. How does a motorcycle utilize nitrogen? Which element can absorb harmful chemicals in water? Which famous landmark is made of copper? From hydrogen to sodium to nickel, it is fun to learn these facts.
Help Your Kids with Adolescence is a guide that helps parents answer children's questions about growing up as they become adolescence. With text and innovative visual approach, this straightforward guide help navigate tricky and sometimes uncomfortable questions of puberty, how to deal with peer pressure around drugs and alcohol, encourages online safety, shows how to manage test and school anxieties, and more. 

Help Your Kids with Adolescence will guide both sides of the conversation helping nurture emotional well-being with healthy, clear discussions and questions without judgement during the challenging, confusing years of puberty.
