Frequently asked questions

Are these women real?

Yes! They are everyday women who really do work in amazing STEM careers. Their jobs are real, too!

Are these books just for girls?

Nope! Boys love The Look Up Series, too, and it's great for all kids to see that women hold space in Science, Math, Technology, and Engineering. 

What age group are these books for?

Ages 8 to 12, which is 3rd grade through 6th grade. The Lexile Score ranges from 730 to 870. Book one in the series, AMANDA, TOY ENGINEER, is the easiest to read, and the reading level increase from there. You can find the Lexile score for each book on the product pages for each title. That said, we've had college-aged students find these books fascinating, too, so they're really for anyone who's looking for a STEM career book.

Will there be more books in the series?

We've heard your requests for aerospace representation, marine biologist, and more! New titles are always in the works. Stay tuned! In the meantime, help support this growing series by sharing it with a friend.

Can anyone from The Look Up Series visit my school?

The author of the series, Aubre Andrus, does virtual and in-person visits for schools, libraries, book clubs, and scouting troops. (Learn more on our school visit page). For larger events (and with enough notice) she may be able to drum up a volunteer or two from the series!
