Rated 5 out of 5 by from STEAM Alert! STEAM alert! Another great book that fits so neatly into the ever buzzy STEAM category. A Blue Spruce nominated book from 2015 Young Frank, Architect by Frank Viva is actually the first storybook for The Museum of Modern Art located in New York City. It's the story of young Frank and his grandfather old Frank. Young Frank is an architect who uses anything he can get his hands on to build interesting things but when he starts to question his desire to be an architect, a trip to MoMa inspires him, and his grandfather to continue creating anew. The Forest of Reading program was created to get children excited about reading and to promote Canadian authors and illustrators. Although Frank Viva is a Canadian, I found it interesting that a book that was written specifically for an American institution and based in New York would have been on this list. The reason is most likely because Viva is a celebrated Canadian author and the book addresses a very important topic in Canadian education these days (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math or STEAM). A fantastic book to promote the sciences and to spur the creativity of our children and show them the many avenues that are available to them. Published by MoMA The Museum of Modern Art
