Shared booklist

BKLYN STEM Board Books

Here's a list of developmentally appropriate board books for infants and toddlers that illustrate science, technology, engineering, or math concepts in simple ways. And remember, every book has STEM concepts in it! It is all about the language we use with very young children to talk about the book that makes it a STEM learning experience. Look at the pictures with your child and talk about the size, shape, color, number, texture, and patterns you see. Talk about the cause and effect actions in the story. Ask open-ended questions that encourage your child to make predictions about what will happen next, even if they are not talking yet! Soon they will be having lively STEM conversations with you.
