code.org - I'm delighted with the progress Khadija has made using code.org in the last year. The platform does a good job of teaching my child, while also making the process fun. See detailed review here.
Favorite books on development
Teach your child to read in 100 Easy Lessons - This book is entirely a slam-dunk recommendation. Both my children learned to read in less than two months with this simple and effective system. Read my review and watch my YouTube video to learn more.
Amazon STEM Toys Club - For $20 a month, we get a new STEM Toy that often retails for twice as much. The toys are generally more educational than fun, but as long as you are willing to participate with your kids, these STEM toys are excellent educational assets.
Favorite for kids
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls - 100 Amazing role models for your girl. Don't hesitate. This is worth every penny. See our review to learn more.
Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes - Which kid doesn't love flying paper airlines? See our review of this excellent book that will teach your child how to make 10 incredible planes and explains the science behind it.
Explore the Human Body by Luann Columbo - Awesome book for your future doctor. See our video review.
KidKraft Waterfall Mountain Train Set and Table - Bought this for Rizwan when he was four years old. Watching him create, edit and play with this 120 piece fully formed world is one of the all-time great memories.
Her Stem Story - I like to play this Podcast when Khadija's in the car so that we can both listen to the amazing female STEM role models provide helpful advice on how they achieved the success they have.
The Premed Years - Exceptional podcast for any high school, college or medical school student pursuing their MD diploma.
SciGirls - introduces viewers via a combination of cartoon and real tween profiles, how science and math principles can be applied to real-life scenarios. On a recent episode, my daughter watched girls not much older than her exploring the ocean and then using the internet to do additional research. It's excellent and deserves to have a much bigger viewership.
