Attention - Shipping

The transition of our inventory to a new warehouse is taking longer than we anticipated. As a result, we are experiencing fulfillment delays and order(s) are taking longer to ship out. We are working hard to get the stock moved to our new facility as quickly as possible so that we are better equipped to meet your needs. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.


Picture-Perfect STEM, 3-5 Assembled Book Collection

Would you like to use the award-winning Picture-Perfect Science series but don’t want the hassle of tracking down the trade books that accompany each lesson? NSTA offers a collection of more than two dozen hardcover and softcover picture books used in the popular Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons, 3-5.

For teachers eager to integrate STEM into their school day, Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons is an exciting development. You’ll help your grades 3-5 students engage in STEM activities while they learn to read and read to learn.

Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons for the upper-elementary grades uses a remarkable variety of books to teach STEM concepts and reading’s comprehension strategies.

All the books fit inside a zippered canvas tote bag with a screened image of the book cover on it. This bundled set is a great value especially compared to the retail cost (and effort) of buying the books separately.

Please note that while we strive to build complete collections, occasionally we cannot find ample supply of one or more of the trade books. In such cases, we will ship the nearly complete collection to you, minus the missing book(s). If your collection is missing a book, rest assured that we are doing our best to find more stock of that book and will send it to you as soon as we can. If it proves impossible to stock the book in a reasonable amount of time, we will refund a portion of your payment.

If you have any questions about the book collection, please email us at
