Trade books dedicated to nurturing the wonder and curiosity inherent in young minds


Science educators have long known the benefits of using children’s picture books to help teach important science concepts. And every parent has experienced strings of “why” question from little ones—

  • Why do some birds have pointy beaks?
  • Why is a siren so loud?
  • Why do we find seashells on the beach?
  • Why does the sky change color when the Sun sets?

NSTA Kids fills the needs of both teachers and parents by providing lively children’s picture books that also impart sound science. Engaging narratives and bold, bright graphics help make science fun and encourage children to curl up with a good book and keep asking, “Why?”

Especially designed to be experienced with an adult—whether a parent, teacher, or friend—Next Time You See books serve as a reminder that you don’t have to look far to find something remarkable in nature.
