My hypothesis: You've been on the lookout for a list of the best kids books about scientist. Experiment: We created the best list of children's books about scientists. Conclusion: You're in luck! From books about historical figures like Albert Einstein to fictional reads about characters like Ada Twist, these scientific stories are sure to stir up inspiring goals, hopes, and ideas in your little scientists! Who knows, maybe one of these books will spark an interest in learning engineering or astronomy, maybe even one of these bookworms will become the scientist that discovers how to cure cancer or live on Mars! This list has all the best titles in the category of children's books, but you can easily toggle the list to filter for board books, picture books, or chapter books. Board books are geared for ages 0-3 and a great for small readers, as they're more durable and aim to entertain the earliest of readers. Picture books are generally geared for ages 2-6, so these are your best bet for preschoolers and early-elementary age students--but really, any age can enjoy these (even the parents!). Chapter books are typically geared for ages 8-12, depending on the book and the child's reading level. Within the chapter books on the list, you can check the "recommended age" listed by each book to search even more specifically for your child, as there's a variety of books great for early readers, titles best for middle-grade readers, and books for tween readers. Some of our favorites on this list are: the board book "This Little Scientist: A Discovery Primer" for even our smallest readers to dream big, the picture book "Stephen Hawking" (from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series) for ages 5-8, and the chapter book " Ellie, Engineer" for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders (or 8-10 year olds). Let us know if you have any titles you'd add to the list!
