The Berenstain Bears Go on Vacation
by Stan Berenstain (Author), Mike Berenstain (Author) and Jan Berenstain (Author, Illustrator)
Booktalk: It’s summer vacation, and the Berenstain Bears are off to the seashore for sun and fun. (Last chance to read this before school starts next week!)
They see the sea.
They hear it roar.
There is something special
about the shore.

Junior Scientists: Experiment with Heat (Science Explorer Junior)
by Sophie Lockwood (Author)
Booktalk: Find out how scientists work by doing simple experiments. (It’s been over 100 degrees here for WEEKS so this seemed like a good book for all of the kids going back to school on Monday…)
We will use the scientific method to learn more about heat. Heat affects almost everything in our world. We feel it in our weather. We use it to prepare our food.
It’s STEM Friday! (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
This week’s STEM Friday Round-up is hosted by Simply Science
