Reading is so super important for our future generations. However, what if they don’t really like to do it? Well, for my son, he loves Minecraft related books. To him, it doesn’t get any better than that.
It doesn’t get any better than Minecraft
My boy loves Minecraft. As a matter of fact, every Monday is Minecraft night. I made our own server, and he and I explore worlds, mine goodies, and fight mobs. Liam doesn’t like to read. He has a hard time absorbing what he reads too. He’d rather me read to him, or books that are short, and concise, so he can remember it all.
I just found him 5-Minute Adventure Stories for Minecrafters Extreme Stories from the Extreme Hills. So first of all it’s Minecraft. That’s already a win in his book. Secondly, they’re very quick and entertaining stories. Greyson Mann really hit the ball out of the park on this book. The illustration by Grace Sandford are awesome too!
STEM for the girls
We need more women in the field of STEM, so why not start them young? Lucy’s Lab are books about a second grade female protagonist named Lucy. Author Michelle Houts uses these entertaining stories to engage girls, and to draw on STEM themes.
The first book in the series in Lucy’s Lab Nuts About Science. In this book, Lucy sets out on a mission to find out what happened to the tree that sat outside her classroom last year, and to replace it by planting a new on. Join Lucy, her cousin Cora, and their classmates to see how it ends, and learn that science is all around us.
Book two in the series is Lucy’s Lab, Solids, Liquids, and Guess Who’s Got Gas? This book takes place in the fall. Lucy’s class is studying solids, liquids and gasses. She can’t quite grasp gas. But when the entire class embarks on a field trip, a fellow classmate eats too many apples, and gets a belly ache. Lucy then realizes that just because you can’t see a gas, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
