A Guide to Science Picture Books

AAAS has been reviewing children’s science books since it started publishing its Science Books lists in the early 1960s. In celebration and support of the 2016 November is Picture Book Month, SB&F presents its list of recommended outstanding science picture books from the past few years and a few old-time favorites. This list was compiled and annotated by Terrence E. Young, Jr., M.Ed., MLS, chairperson of the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prizes for Excellence in Science Books for the Children’s, Middle, and Hands-On categories.
