An excellent resource for early childhood educators as they enter the world of tinkering, making, and engineering. Focusing the design challenges around literature provides an accessible vehicle for those who are unsure of where to begin their STEM journey.

I have always believed that students learn best by doing, and I try to provide them with hands-on opportunities that promote student-led learning. This book is filled with fun, engaging, and inquiry-based activities that I will definitely be using!
