Hi! Many of you reported that integrating science into summer reading was especially fun and successful. You may be interested in the list of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) books from ALA's Association for Library Services to Children. While these book lists (bibliographies) were created with El día de los niños/ El día de los libros in mind, they may be useful for general collection development, readers' advisory, creating displays, and programming. The book lists are available online at: http://www.ala.org/alsc/2015-building-steam-dia-book-lists.

CHICAGO - The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, has released new Building STEAM with Día book lists for children from birth to 8th grade. Intended to accompany El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Día)<http://dia.ala.org/> programming, the four book lists are comprised of multicultural titles that showcase STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) topics.
The four Building STEAM with Día book lists are available for children from birth to Pre-K, kindergarten to 2nd grade, 3rd to 5th grade and 6th to 8th grade. PDFs of the reading lists are available online in full color and are free to download, copy and distribute. Book lists are available online at: http://www.ala.org/alsc/2015-building-steam-dia-book-lists.
The lists also feature simple and age appropriate STEAM activities to accompany one of the titles on the list. Each is designed to help librarians and parents bring the book to life through easy hands-on STEAM activities.
Titles and activities in the Building STEAM with Día book lists were selected and developed by members of ALSC's Quicklists Consulting Committee. These free book lists were made possible through the Everyone Reads @ your library grand funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
Día, El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. The Día celebration was founded in 1996 by children's book author Pat Mora, who proposed conceptually linking the existing El Día del Niño with literacy. The founding partner of Día is REFORMA, the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking. For more information please visit http://dia.ala.org<http://dia.ala.org/>.
ALSC, a division of the ALA, is the world's largest organization dedicated to the support and enhancement of library service to children. With a network of more than 4,000 children's and youth librarians, literature experts, publishers and educational faculty, ALSC is committed to creating a better future for children through libraries.
