Meet Petra, a rock. Or an egg? Perhaps an elephant! Whether she is proud of her status as a magnificent mountain, pretending to be an egg or being turned into an elephant, Petra is a little rock with a lot of confidence, imagination and potential.
Wonderfully depicting children’s love for playfully discovering the natural world around them, the book encourages them to see things differently. Celebrate children’s enthusiasm for thinking outside the box by finding new functions for a stick, dreaming up different futures for a sea shell or imagining the adventures of a gumnut.
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
