With the exciting new emphasis on STEM, it's no wonder that there's been a surge of STEM books for kids to inspire the engineers of tomorrow. We've compiled a list of the best kids books about engineering, so you can dive right in! We've included a range of different books on this list, from children's books about inventors like Londer Phillips in "Papa's Mechanical Fish" to story books about engineering like "Rosie Revere Engineer." Some are books that will help train young minds to the engineering mindset like "What Do You Do With an Idea?" and "The Almost Impossible Thing". Others focus on teaching specific engineering principles such as "Aerospace Engineering for Babies." Whatever your tastes, you're sure to find some of the best STEM books of 2019 on this list, as well as years past. This list has board, picture and chapter books. Board books are best for babies and toddlers, from newborn to ages 2 or 3. Picture books are ideal for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age children. If you're looking for books for older elementary (for example engineering books for 10-year-olds) or for middle school, some picture books may still be of interest, but you're most likely looking for chapter books. You can either view the full list, or filter to a single type of book at a time! Without further ado, enjoy this engineering list!
