The Ultimate List of Middle Grade Science Books

Literature based education is my jam. I try to fit in as many books as we can throughout our school year. Forget the text books, I want real, living books! Picture books, novels, you name it. All of our Rabbit Trails through Science curriculum is filled with amazing pictures books and is a great fit for both elementary and middle school learners.
