Bronson Beaver Builds a Robot by Teko Bernard | STEAM Chapter Book Review

My son has really blossomed as a reader this year. He is in first grade, and now he is able to read well on his own!

I am Anne Frank (Ordinary People Change the World) | STEAM Children’s Book Review

As long as I can remember I've had a great interest to learn about the Holocaust. I think it started when I was a young girl and I learned my Jewish grandfather fought in World War II in Europe.

Math Curse | STEAM Children’s Book Review

My mother-in-law is a retired middle school math teacher. During a recent visit I found several math picture books at her house. She told me she used to read these books to her students at school. We initially thought they might be too advanced for my kids (because she taught grades 6-8), but I...
