3 of the Year's Best STEM Books to Enjoy with Your Kids

Science and math can be a dry subject, but kids who are introduced to concepts early in life are more likely to not only understand them, but enjoy them! That's why these three books caught our eye in a BIG way this year, and we recommend them for anyone who wants to foster even more learning in their child's life through amazing, full-color books!

What books are we reading? 

Anatomicum: Welcome to the Museum by Jennifer Z. Paxton and illustrated by Katy Wiedemann (Big Picture Press), ages 8-12

This book takes you inside the human body to see it from a new perspective. Bold color illustrations help kids see why each part is so unique and important. With a theme much like an art museum, it makes anatomy accessible to every child (and adult!) 

The Language of the Universe: A Visual Exploration of Mathematics by Colin Stuart, Illustrated by Ximo Abadia (Big Picture Press) for ages Ages 8-12


With a beautiful collection of illustrations and easy-to-understand explanations, this book approaches complex math and art concepts that kids will find fascinating. This is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the mind! 

One of a Kind: A Story About Sorting and Classifying by Neil Packer (Big Picture Press) Ages 7-10

Have you wondered what goes into classifying animals, plants, or rocks? This amazing book on taxonomy teaches kids about how to sort and classify in terms they will easily understand. With examples including apples, family members, and musical instruments, young readers won't see things quite the same way ever again. 

Which book do you think your child will like best?
