A Rat in a Stripy Sock | Author: Frances Watt | Age: 4+ years
A rat finds a colourful sock on a grey day, crawls into it and imagines eating and dancing with the neighbours and flying away with balloons to pursue his dreams. He is still just a rat in the rain, but he is happy.
You could collect everyday items to inspire creative STEM experiences with the children. How could they use these items to pursue their dreams? What can you discover in the most unexpected places and what makes you happy? How do you share your happiness with others?
With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
