Posted on December 10th, 2018 in STEM literacy links

Publication: Zog | Authors: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler | Age: 3-6 years

Picture book: Zog by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheptler

Zog is not only the delightful story of a slightly clumsy but ambitious dragon and his adventures at dragon school but also the story of a princess who chooses a medical career over doing nothing while wearing frilly dresses. You can use this book and its sequel, Zog and the flying doctors, as a starting point for discussing career paths with the children and to encourage girls to choose any profession they’re interested in.

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.
