The National Science Teachers Association announced its annual all-stars in science trade books for children from kindergartners to teens. The 2009 list (of books published last year) follows after the break. I've mentioned the titles and included bookstore links, and the NSTA web site includes full details and commentary about each book. Special thanks go to The Miss Rumphius Effect blog for the heads up on the NSTA news.
