Description



Book Synopsis



Girls Can Be Engineers is a beautifully illustrated children's book created to encourage girls to explore male-dominated fields, including Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM), and to remind boys and girls they can pursue each one of their dreams.


The book stars a young girl named Hannah who is in search of a career for her school's upcoming Career Day. Each time she chooses a career, such as a veterinarian, pilot, and archeologist, she becomes discouraged because her chosen careers seem to be only for boys. With the help of her mother, a structural engineer, she learns she can do anything despite her gender.


The stereotype that STEM / STEAM fields are reserved for men only prevents girls, especially those of color, to see themselves in the position of a STEM / STEAM professional. In the book, "Girls Can Be Engineers," young readers can picture themselves in various careers through the eyes of Hannah, a Black / African American girl.


Girls Can Be Engineers makes the perfect gift for girls and boys of all races and ages!
