NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K–12

Back to Top

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has selected these books as outstanding children’s science trade books. They were chosen by a book review panel appointed by the NSTA and assembled in cooperation with the Children’s Book Council (CBC). NSTA and CBC have joined forces on this bibliographic project since 1973, when the list was known as Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children and was primarily targeted at grades K through 8. Beginning in 2002, the list has been expanded to include high school as well.
