Want to start incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) for your youngest readers? Check out our brand new My Little Planet series. Written by "Father Goose" himself, Charles Ghigna, these sweet picture books show little ones how even the smallest hands can help take care of our earth. Publishers Weekly called the first book in the series, Little Seeds, "A cheery book for toddlers. . . . Every natural and inanimate object seems to come alive in Jatkowska’s joyful pictures, as the trio nurtures the little plant. The chipper verse and bright palette offer an enthusiastic endorsement of the joys and small miracles to be found outdoors."
We are thrilled to be hosting STEM Friday today! Please add your links in the comments and we'll update them throughout the day.
