Favorite STEM Books: Psst!
With the help of a young tomboy, a group of zoo animals gather parts to engineer their escape. Illustrator & writer Adam Rex includes plenty of clever visual jokes that parents appreciate in his intricately designed zooscape. Both girls like this book -- so it's appropriate for at least ages 4 through 9.
A gift from one of my best friends, who happens to be Ph. D. in Electrical Engineering and work at Google. She's one of my girls' biggest fans when it comes to achievement in math and science -- when the eldest brought her math grade up from a B (gasp) to an A+, she sent one of the most amazing wooden puzzles for her good work.)
