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.
This picture book provides a fabulous stimulus for promoting STEM, both generally and for girls in particular.
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.
