National Children's Book Week
This is National Children's Book Week in the United States. Libraries across the country are sponsoring special events to celebrate. Be sure to print out a bookmark (note: this is a .pdf file) and check out the Children's Choice Book Awards Winners for 2009. You can also find puzzles, book recommendations, advice for having a "read-in", and more!
This is a great time to talk with your family about your favorite books and why you love them. Do any science titles make your top list? Kerm's current favorite science book is Earth & Space, while Little Brother favors The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
If you're looking for good children's science titles, check out this list of recommended books from the American Association for the Advancement of Science and these suggestions from the National Science Teachers Association. You may also like this post about the Royal Society.
