Sophie and the Airplane is part of the STEM Girls Books series.

At the end of each story, readers will meet a role model a professional woman succeeding in the STEM fields and will learn about her exciting career.
Author Bio: For most of her professional career, Kristi Grigsby has been a marketing executive telling stories for the companies she represents. Along the way she has earned more than a dozen prestigious awards for excellence in print, web and video marketing. In addition to servicing clients, she is now taking time to revive her passion for writing children's books. Kristi is also 'Mom' to two STEM girls. Seeing the lack of resources for young girls with strong aptitude for STEM, she was inspired one day to do something about it. Six days later, the business plan was done, ten interviews were conducted, the first four stories were written and STEM Girls Books was launched in January 2017. There has never been a more important time to inspire young girls with the exciting possibilities of careers in science, technology, engineering and math, and Kristi is honored to have a role in that.
