Top 10 Science Books for Kids

Kids are drawn to science because the natural world is just so exciting and most of them don't get enough of it. With screens distracting them from the real entertainment that is right under their nose! You need these 10 Science Books for Kids in your home to inspire your children to explore and discover the world around them. Easy experiments, answers to questions, and visual guides make these books must-haves. There's something for every child, and you won't be able to put them down yourself.

Top 10 Science Books for Kids

Books for Pre-K & Kindergarten

1. Look Inside Your Body The first book to introduce science to a very young child is an easy pick. It is one about our bodies! Children love to talk about their body. Help them understand how their body works and how to take care of themselves with this lift-the-flap book. Try this simple Anatomy Sidewalk Chalk Activity to go with it!

This book really is BIG, with durable fold out pages that contain information on some of the biggest animals on the planet. Did you know a blue whale is bigger than the largest dinosaur?

It has simple explanations to basic science principals that every child should know. You can work through the book by subject for a curriculum if you're homeschooling, or use it as a starting point to plan an experiment.

Edible Bird's Nests

Who doesn't love the combination of crunchy chow mein noodles and chocolate or butterscotch chips? Add peanut butter and it is even better! I even attempted adding marshmallow to the chocolate ones; seriously, I went all out on these things, but the best part for the kids was this was something they could make with minimal help!

For a spring time treat we shaped these into little nests and added a Peanut Butter M&M egg!

Both recipes require Chow Mein Noodles (sorry I don't have an exact amount; just however many you like) and egg shaped candies. Additional ingredients and instructions below!

For the Chocolate/ Peanut Butter/ Marshmallow Nests:

1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 (7 oz) Jar Marshmallow Fluff
2 T butter

Combine the above in a small saucepan and melt, while stirring, until smooth. Stir in Chow Mein Noodles (no set amount just however many you want). Next form little nest shapes on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Add whatever you are using for eggs (like I said, we chose Peanut Butter M&Ms) and refrigerate. I will say the marshmallow fluff keeps the noodles from sticking well, but after shaping the nests and refrigerating they will set up!

For the Peanut Butter/ Butterscotch Nests:

1 Cup Peanut Butter
2 Cups (1 bag) Butterscotch Chips

Combine and melt in small saucepan while stirring. Add Chow Mein Noodles until coated. Form nests on waxed paper lined baking sheets adding egg shaped candies when you finish. Again we used the Peanut Butter M&Ms because you can't get a much better tasting egg shaped candy! These will set up at room temperature, but can be hurried along in the refrigerator.

What a better way to welcome spring then with some delicious little birds nests!
