I think that Gene Yang”Reading Without Walls” platform as National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature is extremely important. Gene Yang’s Secret Coders series is wildly popular in my classroom and my home. Each time I get a new book in the series, my 9 year old son disappears into his room, only to reappear after he has read the new book at least twice. If you haven’t seen these books, you are really missing out.
I love pushing my readers to step outside of their comfort zone, and try books that are a little different from what they normally read. Gene Yang’s Reading Without Walls Challenge has been a great tool in helping me push my students.
Below you will find 6 great 2016 STEM books that I think can help readers discover and fall in love with science, technology, engineering, and math.
