My 10-year-old son already gets a good dose of science at his STEM school, but even after a long, long day of studies, trumpet practice and exercise, he enjoyed reading the some of the new titles in the “Good Question!” history and science series from Sterling Publishing.

Geared toward readers ages 7 and up, the latest additions pose questions in their titles: for instance, “How Does a Caterpillar Become a Butterfly?” and “Who Were the American Pioneers?” Other topics tackle the solar system, human anatomy, and plants, mostly in a question-and-answer format.

All seven of the new titles — $12.95 for hardcover, $5.95 for paperback — are said to be aligned with the Common Core standards. The end of each book offers additional reading and websites for more information on the topic.
