Science Teacher, v83 n3 p61-68 Mar 2016
Science teachers and mentors continue to be challenged to meet the high expectations of "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" and the "Next Generation Science Standards."

This article invites educators to explore this year's 2015 list of Outstanding Science Trade Books, which greatly adds to the 44-year history--and has been organized in response to "NGSS." In these award-winning books, the ready find not only traditional science content but also engineering and design.
