Q: What are Your Favorite Books for getting Girls Interested in STEM?
We have had many books over the years for my now 8 year old daughter. There are two books that are clear winners in this category for me.
My daughter clearly identified with Rosie and read the book many times over. She loved to tell me all about her. This one is especially good for kids 4–8 years old.
After I read the article Raising Rebels I did two things. First I requested the story for the Code Like A Girl publication and second I bought the “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” for my daughter. I had seen the book before, but felt it was over priced. However, after the way Lauren Jerome described it, I knew I had to give it a shot.
We got the book today and my daughter hasn’t been able to put it down. She excitedly tells me about each person she has read. She was very excited that Ada Lovelace was first in the book. She told me about Amelia Earhart flying across the atlantic and how Brenda Chapman directed the movie Brave. I can’t wait to hear about the other amazing women she reads about!
