Current Issue: November 2016
November Issue Highlights
We begin this issue of SB&F with a very special announcement: the finalists of the 2017 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 record 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. (p. 371)
November is Picture Book Month and to help celebrate this occasion we share a bibliography of STEM picture books. Science picture books can be used to teach children to infer, hypothesize, question, identify, explain, and compare. By making the "invisible visible” the young child can understand the ways science content will affect their lives, future careers, and global issues. (p. 377)
Our Read-Around-A-Theme this month focuses on the topic of food, from how we grow, raise, and catch our food to the politics surrounding food production and how the food industry influences nutrition and health. (p. 387)
Finally, as in every issue, you’ll find our monthly selection of books, media, and website reviews and our listings of upcoming science television programming.
