Current Issue: January 2018
Happy New Year! We begin this issue of SB&F with a very special announcement: the winners of the 2018 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books!
The prizes, which are fully supported by Subaru, recognize recently published works that are scientifically sound and foster an understanding and appreciation of science in young readers. With a large number of submissions for this year’s prizes, our judges were kept very busy reading and critiquing books all during the summer and fall months.
The winning authors/illustrators receive a check for $1,500 and a commemorative plaque, which will be presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Austin, TX on February 17th.
If you will be attending our meeting, or live in the metropolitan Austin, TX, area, please check out our Family Science Days on February 17th and 18th. Attendees can explore interactive science exhibits, learn about cool science jobs, and have your questions answered by scientists! Some of the SB&F Prize winners will be on hand as well! Family Science Days are FREE and open to all, and feature hands-on demos, shows, talks by scientists, and other activities appropriate for K–12 children and their families. You can find out more at Family Science Days.
This issue also includes our listing of the most highly rated books and videos published last year. Subscribers can look up the full reviews of the listed resources in our archives or by searching on our website.
Finally, our Read-Around-A-Theme focuses on the boss of all of us: the brain.
