DC26814 AJune 5, 2013 - The diversity of bats, the language of birds, "wacky" animal defenses, and the inspiring true stories of physicist Albert Einstein, oceanographer Sylvia Earle, and environmentalist Rachel Carson are all covered on a new list of 10 top summer science books for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. The summer reading list, suggested by Science Books & Films (SB&F) at the nonprofit American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), promises to stimulate children's imaginations and help combat summer learning loss.

"When children's minds are engaged by reading a good book, they are learning," said AAAS Senior Project Director Maria Sosa. "Keeping younger students intellectually stimulated is especially important over the summer. That's when many students, particularly those with fewer enrichment opportunities, risk losing ground academically." The suggested SB&F books are fun to read, too. This year's summer list from SB&F, an online guide to notable science materials, includes 60 titles across three categories of readers: Children in kindergarten through fourth grade; middle and junior high school students (grades 5-9); and older high school students / young adults. For the complete list, see http://www.sbfonline.com/Subaru/Pages/SummerReading2013.aspx. For younger children, SB&F's suggestions include:

On a Beam of Light: A Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne
Bird Talk: What Birds Are Saying and Why by Lita Judge
City Fish, Country Fish by Mary M. Cerullo
