As you can see by the very few listings on this page, we don't carry too many books.  That's because there are tons of books on science topics typically available in book stores, online and in libraries.  We prefer to specialize in the hard to find science equipment and supplies you will see on our other pages, but we really like the books listed below, as well as the TOPS units you can find on their own page.

For more excellent books, be sure to visit our page describing the popular TOPS Units.   There you will find dozens of books covering specific areas of science and math education such as Electricity, Magnetism, Probability, Animal Survival, Rocks & Minerals, Planets & Stars, etc.  All the TOPS books contain science or math activities that use simple materials easily found around the home or classroom like paper clips, rubber bands, baby food jars, soup cans, etc.  Only a very small amount, if any, equipment needs to be purchased and this varies from Unit to Unit.  Items such as a thermometer, a small magnifier, a magnet, some simple chemicals, etc. are available from Science Is... if you don't have access to them elsewhere.  Click here: TOPS PAGE to see the excellent TOPS units.
