Check out this book recommendation from our Raising A Reader program:
"Building with Dad" by Carol Nevius
This book falls into the Engineering STEM category for our Raising A Reader program. Books about engineering in early childhood introduce young children to explore how things are constructed and work. They also encourage young children to think about how they can make things work differently or better. We encourage you to pick up this book again from your local Timberland Regional Library and use these question frames to help your child think like an engineer:
- How did _____ get built/constructed?
- What is ______ made of?
- How would you make _____ better?
- Can you think of another way to make _____?
- Why do you think they built _____ that way?
