Baby Steps to STEM is an extraordinarily well-written and accessible guidebook on how to provide children from birth to age three with learning experiences that form an optimal foundation for STEM learning. The first three chapters offer readers a concise yet remarkably expansive background on principles and concepts relating to early childhood learning and development. The balance of the book consists of 60 play-based, developmentally appropriate activities, each of which targets specific STEM learning and development opportunities. Each activity includes extensions, inquiry questions, and tips to help parents strengthen children's learning at home, organized in an easy to absorb 2-page per activity format. Baby Steps to STEM's high quality of writing and excellent organizational structure are a pleasure to behold, while the insights and activities that grace page after page make it an indispensable resource every parent, teacher and caregiver should read.
