Children’s books have the power to inspire, comfort and educate. Here are a few highlights from this month’s releases that nourish children on all levels:

Everyday Superheroes: Women In Energy

ALLY Energy is teaming up with Award-Winning Author Erin Twamley to create a multicultural children’s book called Everyday Superheroes: Women In Energy. The book, which will be released in 2022, will delve into the fascinating energy careers of 26 diverse women who are powering our planet.

Part of the “STEM Superheroes™” series, this unique book will use an A to Z format to share each career paired with the stories and illustrations of real women working in these energy careers. The book will offer children a glimpse into the diverse range of energy jobs that are available while giving them an understanding as to why such jobs are so meaningful.

What began as a creative collaboration of co-authors Erin Twamley and Joshua Sneideman, is launching into a series with a third book featuring engineers already being imagined. This STEM Superheroes™ book series introduces kids and caregivers to STEM careers.

Wise Ink is slated to publish “Everyday Superheroes: Women In Energy” in February 2022. ALLY will celebrate the launch of the book on March 8, 2022, International Women’s Day, at its Annual IWD Energy Forum.
