"As a teacher and a mom of a tween girl, I thought this book was fantastic! I love that the featured job is outside the ordinary STEAM box and something that will catch and hold kids’ attention right away, but also emphasizes the importance of science, math, creativity, and problem solving. The design is right on target for the audience, and the questions and fill-in-your-own-thoughts pages and spaces are engaging and developmentally appropriate. I can’t wait to see the next book in the series!"

"This series is so motivating and empowering for my third grade students. It’s diverse and shows my students the pathway to success and gives them hope to follow their dreams. I will definitely be buying this for Christmas for the kids in my life."

"I am OBSESSED with this book. As a young woman pursuing engineering at the moment, when I read this book I could see the representation and information about STEM for young girls that I so badly wish that I had been exposed to earlier in my life. Every young girl needs this book, if not to show them a possibility for their future, but to also allow them to be creative in a way they have never been able to before."
