Science in Middle Grade Fiction

on July 4, 2017

Check out my guest post for Sci/Why about Science in Middle Grade Fiction.

When I first joined this group of Canadian science writers I thought my next children’s book would be a nonfiction title about space. That didn’t happen. What did happen was me realizing I could combine my love of science and fiction instead.

There are so many great titles that combine great stories and sound science. After this post was written, I came across a new book co-written by Bill Nye the Science Guy. “The perfect combination to engage and entertain readers, the series features real-world science along with action and a mystery that will leave kids guessing until the end, making these books ideal for STEM education.” I haven’t read book one yet, but I have downloaded the audiobook for our first summer road trip!

A belated Happy Canada Day and Happy 4th to my neighbours down south!!
