About the book:
The Katey Howes book has been thoughtfully selected to pair with our Maker Box as it presents making in a variety of forms. Not only is making about creating things, it also shows that it can be as simple as making a decision or making a team. With a final line in the book of “Ask yourself this question as the sun begins to fade: in a day of making choices, are you proud of what you made?”. What a perfect way to teach the making process as part of the developing STEM mindset.
Note: You will receive a hard-cover copy of this picture book.
