ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Last August, NSTA Press announced the launch of NSTA Kids, a collection of children’s trade books dedicated to nurturing the wonder and curiosity inherent in young minds. The series I Wonder Why has just released 5 new books, bringing the series to 10 books, all designed for children in grades K–6 and written to engage them and impart sound science.
Noted science educator Larry Lowery is the author of numerous publications, including The Everyday Science Sourcebook, Revised 2nd Edition, released in 2012 by NSTA Press. His I Wonder Why series features colorful, often whimsical illustrations and simple scientific information that encourage young readers to ask questions and seek answers.
Teachers and parents looking for age-appropriate resources about Earth science and nature can use these books to supplement and extend science programs and help develop a love for science in children. Lowery’s new titles—Clouds, Rain, Clouds Again, Spenser and the Rocks, How Does the Wind Blow?, Up, Up in a Balloon, and Environments of Our Earth—each offer an introduction to three important tasks of scientists: observing, comparing, and organizing. What better way could there be to encourage our youngest students to learn science than by reading a great book?
You can browse sample pages of these books for free at the NSTA Science Store website at www.nsta.org/store.
