My 10-ish Favorite STEM Books of 2020

Today I'm finishing up my posts for 2020 with my annual list of favorite STEM books. This year’s list includes fifteen titles because I just couldn’t narrow it down to ten. It was a stellar year for nonfiction, and for STEM titles in particular.

Six of the books appeared on from my #SibertSmackdown list a few weeks ago:

Being Frog by April Pulley Sayre


Crossings: Extraordinary Structures for Extraordinary Animals by Katy S. Duffield


Dream Builder: The Story of Architect Philip Freelon by Kelly Starling Lyons


Honeybee: The Busy Life of Apis Mellifera by Candace Fleming


Tiny Monsters: The Strange Creatures That Live on Us, in Us, and Around Us by Steve Jenkins


You’re Invited to a Moth Ball by Loree Griffin Burns

 

I’m also including eight additional titles that you won’t want to miss:

All Thirteen: The Incredible Cave Rescue of the Thai Boys' Soccer Team by Christina Soontornvat
