It’s unlikely that your newborn can program a computer and even less likely that she understands rocket science. But it’s never too early to learn, right? At least that’s the thinking behind a collection of STEM books geared towards kids whose big challenge this week is figuring out how their hands work. Someday, however, those hands will be able to type our software code, or build a toy robot, or create a circuit. Until then, we’ve compiled a list of books that might help them get familiar with the fascinating worlds of science, technology, engineering, and math. Things are going to get interesting!
