Favorite Science Books

I'm a little late to the science party. I did post yesterday about a science activity and I mean to post my favorite science books but you know how it is.
My favorite science books are Magic School Bus. I know the concepts are sometimes a little over my kids' heads but they are presented in such a fun way.The plants seeds in one of my favorites. We have a subscription to Discovery education and United Streaming at my school so we watch a lot of Magic School Bus videos. Every year I think about dressing up as Ms. Frizzle for book character day. To me she's the ultimate teacher.
I'm also a big fan of the Let's Read and Find out Science series. I have several of these books about different topics. This one works great for a solids, liquids and gas unit we do in first grade.
My favorite book to talk about the environment is I can Save the Earth by Allison Inches. It is a great way to introduce little ones to taking care of the environment.
I also am a big fan of Gail Gibbons and her books. I think she presents things in an informative way that is still interesting.
Those are just a few of my favorite books. I'm looking forward to checking out all the other favorite science books in the linky party at TBA.

  2. Magic school bus videos are really fascinating as bus bus videos for kids, so friendly, but sometimes it creates an illusion of uthopian schemed-universe.
