    • Abstract:
      By providing a wide selection of high-quality materials that will grab the attention of individual readers, school libraries can play an integral part in initiating and supporting student agency and a student-centered approach to learning. Such materials should not only address and expand upon what kids are learning in the classroom, but also allow them to explore an array of personal interests, tastes, and passions. Every student has his or her own way of acquiring and processing factual content, and books presented in different formats nurture a variety of learning styles and specific preferences. This article highlights books with a focus on science and can be used to supplement classroom materials and traditional narrative nonfiction. Ranging from profusely illustrated graphic novels to captivating fiction series, these titles will appeal to a spectrum of tastes, learning styles, and interests. The titles featured here are a small sampling of the wide range of offerings that can be used to explore and expand upon science curriculums, and a similar spectrum of selections for other subject areas should also be made available. These materials can be identified by consulting professional review sources, library catalogs, and readers' advisory resources such as CLCD (Children's Literature Comprehensive Database) or EBSCO's NoveList.
