If you can read you can learn anything. Combining science and literature is a brilliant approach to nurturing a passion in both.
In full disclosure, I was given this product and was compensated for my time.
The love of reading is something we instill in our kids from a young age and I’m always intrigued when subjects outside of the obvious combine it with its material. Sonlight Science does just this! Hang out a moment to see what’s included in their science kits.

Discover and Do
The Discover & Do Science book includes 36 experiments that tap into biology, botany, physiology, ecology, psychology, meteorology, physics, chemistry, mathematics engineering, and STEM. I love this one tidbit in the “how this program works” section of the book:
Your students will use the Scientific Method to explore their world, not just memorize the steps. Your students will brainstorm solutions to problems, and have space to come up with ways to test them with you. Together, we will begin to prepare them to think for themselves, weigh the claims they encounter around them, and innovate on their own.
One of our priorities as parents should be to raise children who are free thinkers in all things, so I love that the foot-in of this approach is just that!
Sonlight Science Discover & Do is super fun appraoch to science that will tap into your students inner scientist and detective! It’s comprised of the science book that outlines the expereiments, access to experient videos, and a box filled with supplies!
Meet-Cute: Literature and Science
I adore this part! This is an amazing component for not only students who love to read but it’s also great to encourage it in reluctant readers. When I was unboxing the Sonlight Science box, the first think ALL my kids did was go for the books (even my adult kiddo as she thought it was so cool to see liturature type books in a scince kit!).

- Little Kids First Big Book of Why
- From Seed to Plant
