stacey_mayAs the weather here in Northern Virginia starts to cool down, the kids head back to school, and football season begins, I like to spend my evenings cuddling up with a warm blanket and a mind-nourishing book. Who am I kidding, I bring a blanket to my office year round, but that’s a topic for another post!

The AAPS Blog reached out to STEM teachers, librarians, and graduate students asking them to highlight their favorite educational and engaging science titles targeted towards elementary school children; teenagers and young adults; and university-level students looking for recreational reading. So as school starts engaging our minds again, this week we will offer those recommendations.

We hope you share these recommendations with your family and friends, and we can’t wait to learn which titles were your favorites and why!

Happy Reading!
