The Best Scientist Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Reading about the lives of people in science is a sure-fire way to bring science to life for kids. Through the stories of these people, kids can see qualities they might share, and they might find the inspiration to try out some of their own ideas. Luckily, there are some stellar children’s books available, and more and more women in science are being recognized, so all kids should be able to find a role model.
