We were all children once, and that means we are aware that around that age, we’re all naturally curious to learn about the world. We also know that when it comes to children, one of the best ways to satisfy that curiosity is by giving them a good book that they can immerse themselves into, with the hopes that they’ll learn something new, or even fall in love with reading in the process.

Science books in particular, are great for young, budding minds since they not only teach facts, but also familiarize children with the process of learning the science behind it, which is known as the scientific method.

So if you have a kid who has one too many questions, or are looking for some books that can help guide your child’s way, here are our top picks for you and your kid.


While still in their infant stage, your child can best benefit from Canadian physicist Chris Ferrie’s work, which are books filled with complex scientific topics made into simple pictures and words. There’s rocket science for babies, general relativity for babies and even quantum physics for babies. No guarantee your kid will be a genius, but you can learn a thing or two.

Pre-K to Kindergarten

Once they’re running around and ready for school, you can give them “Pushinka the Barking Fox: A True Story of Unexpected Friendship,” which gives children a simpler and kinder view on evolution, focusing more on affection and cooperation rather than competition. Written by by University of Louisville biologist Lee Dugatkin and Russian geneticist Lyudmila Trut, this one can teach your kid life lessons like love.

First to second grade

At this age, books like “Ada Twist, Scientist,” by Andrea Beaty can help kids differentiate between facts and feelings.

Fourth to sixth grade

If your kid has a pet, then they’ll be sure to enjoy “Inside of a Dog – Young Readers Edition” by Barnard psychologist Alexandra Horowitz, which shows how the world is experienced through a dog’s nose. Cat lovers are welcome as well.

Middle School

Make your child’s middle school years easier by giving them “On the Origin of Species: Young Readers Edition,” which is an adaptation of Darwin’s famous work, but simpler and well, easier to digest. It’s essentially a tween-friendly version of the British naturalist’s work that your kid can easily soak up and enjoy.
