Social Science Books

Add social science books to your bookcase to increase your cultural awareness. Books from Bellwether Media, Abdo Publishing Company, and Picture Window Books introduce kids and adults to new ideas. Keep social science books at home, in the classroom, or in your office.

Children's Books
Children's social science books give kids a glimpse into how other people around the world live, work, and play. Use these books in the classroom to help raise awareness and to teach kids about tolerance, cultural sensitivity, and social norms in a way that is easy to understand. By presenting complex topics using enjoyable stories and fun-to-remember trivia, social science books help kids develop compassion, critical thinking, and empathy while increasing their knowledge and expanding upon formal lessons taught in class.

Important Topics
Understanding the modern world involves understanding different cultures, and social science books help you gain the insight you need to deal with the increasing complexity of modern society. In-depth texts on the development of religions, the significance of sporting events, and organizational structures expand your mind and provide a basic background in a wide variety of topics. Individual nonfiction books about people living in a specific culture add depth to your understanding.

Fun Activities
Cultural topics take a fun turn with social science books that feature exciting activities, such as coloring, games, projects, and crafts. With step-by-step lessons and activity suggestions, these books make learning about the world more fun for both kids and adults. Combine the use of social science activity books and foreign language books to get a fuller understanding of a specific country or culture.
