Introducing kids to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) helps instill valuable lessons in problem-solving, critical thinking, experimentation and teamwork that are critical in a child’s life. But interesting kids in STEM at an early age is easier said than done.
In order to get children engaged and interested in STEM, it must be presented in a simple and approachable way. One way to accomplish this with children is through books. Independent publishing house called Gil Harp Books is helping kids learn STEM with their latest book, The Blocks Come Out at Night. The book, which is receiving praise from parents and educators, introduces basic science and engineering concepts to children in grades K to 3. Written by Javier Garay and illustrated by Keenan Hopson, it creates an approachable way of teaching young kids about STEM. It combines STEM and non-STEM topics in a seamless way, showing kids that STEM can be fun.
