2010 Outstanding Science Trade Books

Selected by the National Science Teachers Association and the Children’s Book Council, the books cover grades K-12.  You can visit their website for the books published in 2010 that they consider the best science trade books of the year.

I was pleased to see some of my favorites on the list:

Life in the Boreal Forest by Brenda Z. Guiberson, illustrated by Gennady Spirin (my review)

Redwoods by Jason Chin (my review)

Under the Snow by Melissa Stewart (my review)

Hilary Duff has signed a multi-book deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers. 

The first novel, Elixir, will be published in October of this year. 

There is also a nonfiction title in the deal which will be about divorce.  It is due to be published in 2012.

Once again we can hope that a celebrity can actually write.
