Summer reading programs offer readers ways to explore thematic lists, complete fun activities, and discover new books. This month, we’re focusing on ways that public librarians, parents, and readers can use Book Connections, TeachingBooks’ sister site, to connect more deeply with summer reading.
"So, how can we use books to encourage children’s interest in STEM? To do so, we need to ignite their excitement at an early age.

How can we help children overcome these obstacles? It’s easy. All we have to do is expose them to STEM-related books, both fiction and nonfiction."
