Grades 6-12

girling up

Mayim Bialik is best known for playing Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory. Some may know, though, that she has a Ph.D. in neuroscience. She puts that knowledge to good use in this book for teens and young girls. She discusses things that all girls go through in their lives, and what they deal with on a daily basis, such as friends, family and school. Using scientific facts and stories from her own life, Bialik explains the biological, psychological and sociological aspects of growing up a girl, or as she says, “girling up.”

Meatless?: A Fresh Look At What You Eat by Sarah Elton

Grades 3-6

meatless

This is a great book for kids about vegetarianism! It speaks to the kids who might not be vegetarians, but are thinking about it, as well as vegans and pescatarians. I thought it explains why abstaining from eating meat is good for your health as well as the environment. It even explains why some religions don’t eat certain meats, or prepare it a certain way. This is a great one for any collection!
