Have you ever wondered what you want to be when you grow up? Well, Everyday Superheroes: Women in STEM Careers by Erin Twamley and Joshua Sneideman gives an in-depth look at twenty-six different STEM careers that use STEM superpowers: observation, imagination and curiosity, problem-solving, collaboration, data collection and analysis, and communication. The book is arranged in alphabetical order and introduces the reader to a variety of different jobs, such as 3-D animation and marine biology, as well as inspirational women who have that job. It also suggests some activities and explains how to use each STEM superpower and what they are.

I really enjoyed reading Everyday Superheroes: Women in STEM Careers by Erin Twamley and Joshua Sneideman. I liked that there were questions and activities throughout the book that would allow the reader to be more involved as they are reading it. The well-drawn and colorful pictures, and the organized layout of the pages are sure to attract the reader's attention. The book introduces the reader to twenty-six inspirational women who would be great role models, and I liked that they weren't all women I have heard of because it allows more women to share the spotlight and allows the reader to learn something new. In addition, having women with the job in the book helps to provide examples of what exactly a person with that job would do, as well as making it more interesting. The book is well written, and the topics are arranged well. I would definitely recommend this book.
