To Celebrate National African American Read-In Month, we are hosting a Virtual Story-time with Author Yasmine Daniels PhD.
Dr. Daniels will be reading from her book “Building My Self-eSTEAM In Science” and sharing a special activity with participants after the reading.
Book Synopsis: Shortly after Charissma’s friends throw her the surprise birthday party, she gets a huge boost in confidence and her “self-eSTEAM”which is a play on the word “self-esteem”. Her friends remind her of some important lessons taking place throughout the story: (1) Don’t ever feel intimidated by something you may not understand. (2) Our everyday activities are a big part of STEAM education. (3) The best way to learn is to make learning fun. (4) There is always someone willing to lend a helping hand. You just need to know where to look. The reader gets to see how friendship, learning and fun are portrayed through the life experiences of the STEAM friends.
