Books for Budding Scientists
If you have a daughter, you'll want to know about the website A Mighty Girl. It features book, movie, and toy recommendations and is geared toward the elementary to early teen set. I came across their list of 30 books about female scientists and wanted to share it with you! It contains books for all ages about such luminaries as Jane Goodall, Temple Grandin, Sylvia Earle, Sally Ride, and Rachel Carson. The more girls see themselves in STEM roles, the more they may be drawn to a career in science and math. Of course, it is also important for budding boy scientists to know about the role women have played. These books highlight a range of sciences and formats, from picture books to chapter books.
