The Best Science Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
The world of science is so vast, that it is really difficult to narrow down a book list of science books for kids. This week, we are focusing on books about science topics in general. Come back next week for our list of scientist books, featuring titles about the people behind the discoveries. Do your kids enjoy science as much as mine do? I didn’t love the subject as a kid, but since I started homeschooling, I’ve grown to enjoy and appreciate it so much more.
If I missed any of your favorites, please share them with me so I can check them out. These are some of the titles I’ve pulled out again and again to read with my kids over the years.
