The purpose of this article is to provide preservice and new STEM teachers with an understanding of the benefits of using science trade books to foster comprehension of the science content in the classroom and explain how to supplement science instruction with children's literature. By using children's literature in the science classroom, students have an opportunity to make connections between science content and reading and writing. In this article, tools for selecting children's literature to use in the science classroom are discussed and ways to incorporate literacy skills and strategies alongside science standards are provided.
