New Children's STEM Book - Veronica and the Volcano

New Children’s STEM Book – Veronica and the Volcano

By: Geoffrey Cook

In August we moved to a new town here in Washington State. Our town lies beneath Mt. Rainier, a volcano. With a 9 year old son who now has to get used to lahar siren tests the first Monday of every month and has lahar escape drills he has been very curious about volcanos. This book may have been written for STEM learning for girls but Anthony is thoroughly intrigued. He has already agreed to donate his copy of this book to his classroom so other 4th grade kids can read it to in our town.

The Story

Ten-year-old Veronica lives in a high-tech, gadget-filled house on the slope of an active volcano. When she leaves on a quest to find rare white volcano pearls on the far side of the biggest volcano of all, Mount Mystery, she leads her father, her best friend Maddy, and her friend’s dad, the blustering Captain John, into a series of incredible adventures. But when the colossal volcano erupts, fears wins an election, and Veronica must square off against a fear-mongering villain: the Man-in-White.

Big-Hearted Charlie Runs The Mile

Big-Hearted Charlie Runs The Mile- Children’s Book

By: Krista Keating-Joseph

 
This children’s book, Big-Hearted Charlie Runs The Mile, is a true story about young Charlie as he is eager to join the track team despite his small size compared to his peers. The book starts off with a clear focus on his eagerness to run and join the team. He doesn’t win any races at first but with practice he not only starts to win but in his paths of growing up he becomes a true hero as a U.S. Navy SEAL.

 

 
Sadly, Charlie would lose his life as a SEAL and this story was hidden for some time until his mother finally became encouraged to finish her book and share a small piece of Charlie’s life events with us all. It is such a sweet read and the illustrations are simple yet full of emotion from characters on every page. Find Big-Hearted Charlie Runs The Mile from Smith Publicity on Amazon.

Sean Wants To Be Messi Series

By: Tanya Preminger

Sean is traveling the world with one passion in heart-soccer! And especially his favorite player, Leo Messi whom he may get a chance to meet in the second book, Sean Goes to Barcelona. The series takes a 9 year old boy and his passion of soccer to teach life skills that touch on school motivation, bullying, teamwork and more.

 

Any child, even who may not have the sports passion will relate to Sean and sort of feel for him too. It is hard to prioritize when you have one thing on your mind, but here are some great lessons for all children in chapter-style books with bright and engaging illustrations.

Lou Knows What To Do: Supermarket – A Book About Social Skills

I have partnered with Boys Town Press for this feature

 

Lou Knows What To Do: Supermarket - A Book About Social Skills

Lou Knows What To Do: Supermarket (Book 1 of 3 in series)

By: Kimberly Tice and Venita Litvack

 
When our 9 year old was growing through stages in life it was books I would turn to when I needed tools. Books helped up potty train, get over the fears of the first day of school. Books helped when I needed to teach him against talking to strangers so freely and even for learning to tie his shoes. When your child goes through stages or even challenges, books can help you explain or teach your child at their level. Lou Knows What To Do is a series of 3 books and the first title in the series is Supermarket.

 

Lou has a special bubble wand that he carries around to help him see into the future so he knows what to do. A trip to the Supermarket is easier with his wand because he will know just what to expect and how to handle himself regardless of who he is with. He needs this help sometimes or it gets very tempting to want to run down aisles or make a fuss at checkout.

 
The story was written to show children how to apply social skills in their daily experiences. It is rated for Pre-K to Fifth Grade and is great for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Find Lou Knows What To Do: Supermarket this September on Amazon.
