There's been a movement in our society to recognize more women in the sciences. Luckily, this much-needed recognition has also migrated into the world of children's literature. One book, Izzy Gizmo to the Rescue, aims to do just that.
Izzy Gizmo is a creative inventor who likes to solve problems using a combination of everyday items.
Just like any other inventor, Izzy gets frustrated when her designs malfunction. Luckily, her grandpa encourages her to try again, echoing Thomas Edison's famous quote: “I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
One day, she comes across an injured crow and has to go through various iterations of an invention to help the crow fly again.
This is a fabulous book to reinforce STEM, females in science, and the importance of perseverance.
