Homeschool PJ Time: A Bedtime STEM Book by Andrea Salzman and illustrated by Amber West is designed to excite homeschooled children about science, technology, engineering, and math. It tells the story of Nina and her one week of learning at home. Each day she learns new things, tests them, and at night, she listens to STEM stories that highlight them. For example, she splashes in puddles to understand Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion. She then observes that doing so results in splatters of mud and water to show that there is an opposite and equal reaction for every action. This fun way of learning is taught using entertaining and easy-to-remember poems and rhymes.
Homeschool PJ Time by Andrea Salzman is a one-week STEM plan that every parent should find greatly helpful in teaching children. The use of storytelling in teaching science, technology, engineering, and math makes it a lot easier for children to understand the concept because they can connect the story to it. Lessons include conduction /convection, reflection/refraction, and potential/kinetic energy. I found the text playful and fun and believe this should make children eager to learn new things. The colorful illustrations enhance the learning experience, and mischievous Nina is a lovable, relatable child. A beneficial weekly STEM plan is included at the end of the book. This system makes education exciting and should improve a child’s memory and learning skills. I highly recommend this book, so do check out the other books in the series!
