Why Book-Inspired STEAM?

Literacy is critical to success in life and obviously the first goal in introducing books to kids. But did you know that learning amplifies when you can integrate it with another subject? So when your kids do science or engineering projects inspired by books, they’re gaining more than if you did these two subjects separately. Plus, kids love Pete the Cat engineering and Giraffes Can’t Dance challenges!!

Here are a few of my favorite book inspired STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, & math) projects for kids.
