Summer is a great time to catch up on your reading. It's also a great time to do some informal science. Put the two together, and you have a recipe for fun.
Over at Wrapped In Foil, I have been putting together a list of new science books for summer reading. The list is organized by age/reading level, and all the book reviews come with suggestions for activities and appropriate works of fiction to pair with the nonfiction.
So, if you have a few minutes to spare and want to explore some interesting new books, go on over and take a look.
Please leave a comment if you have found any nonfiction books to add to the list. Also, let me know if you do the activities. I'd love to hear how they go.
Finally, if anyone would be interested in participating in some sort of summer science reading challenge, let me know. I might even be able to dig up a prize or two.
