Elaine Scott's SPACE, STARS AND THE BEGINNING OF TIME is recommended by The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and also receives the Texas Institute of Letters' Best Children's Book Award
One of the main purposes of the Texas Institute of Letters is to recognize and promote distinctive literary achievement, and this year their Best Children's Book Award goes to SPACE, STARS AND THE BEGINNING OF TIME, by Elaine Scott. This book was also recommended by The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) in an April review. Founded in 1944, this organization is the largest organization in the world committed to promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all.
For science teachers interested in expanding their students' vision of the universe and learn more about space, time, astronauts, the life cycles of stars, black holes, and how the Hubble came to be repaired, you may want to consider having Elaine Scott visit your school. She does presentations specifically on science-related subjects as well as other topics. For further information, visit Balkin Buddies.
