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. He was on the front lines of combat, where he was wounded by shrapnel, and he also wrote and published...

Letters From Space by Retired Astronaut Clayton Anderson | STEAM Children’s Book Review

My kids have always been fascinated by space. Shortly after we moved to Houston we visited Space Center Houston.

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...

The Big Book of Birds by Yuval Zommer | STEAM Children’s Book Review

Today’s Friday Favorite STEAM book is The Big Book of Birds by Yuval Zommer. My kids are really into birds right now and my son asked me if I can get him a book about birds so he can learn more. How could I possibly say no to a request like that? I’ve seen several of Yuval Zommer's picture...
