Primary Science Topic Booklists
We’re here to help you find the best science books for children.
Browse our science topic booklists and brush up on all things STEM, from children’s books about human bodies and health to stories about maths or computer coding and the best space books for children. The experts at BooksForTopics have selected recommended lists of children’s books to bring science, maths and computing topics to life.
Each of our Science topic booklists contains a carefully curated selection of books to support the teaching of the curriculum. When we are assessing the quality of books to consider them for our website, we take into account a number of factors – including age suitability, quality of text, visual appeal, readability, level of interest for children, underlying values, curriculum relevance and print production quality. Our review panel of teachers and education experts is invaluable in providing information about which books support the curriculum effectively, as well as writing detailed reviews for some of the books that we feature too.
In addition to our Review Panel feedback, we work with a team of booksellers to make sure that the books on our lists are readily available from publishers in order to supply them to schools and classrooms. Schools can buy full packs of most of our topic booklists directly from Peters.
So, whatever you are learning about in Science – whether it’s getting the magnifying glass out to go minibeast-hunting, finding out about planting seeds or celebrating famous scientists, our booklists will help you to find the best science books for children.
