I have found a couple of lists of books that I want to make sure my niece reads. The first list is from mighty girl and is all about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This list is broken down by subject and then age range. I might have bought a few books last night for Lilly. Especially the math books because her mother is convinced that she (SIL) is no good at math and therefore will not even talk about it with Lilly or her students. Don't get me started about this...(I too was told I wasn't any good at math when I was in elementary school and I do a whole lot of accounting and statistics now. It doesn't have to stay that way if you are willing to learn.)

Interstellar Cinderella, Underwood, Deborah
Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering! (Baby Loves Science), Spiro, Ruth
Maisy's Moon Landing: A Maisy First Science Book, Cousins, Lucy
Girls Who Looked Under Rocks: The Lives of Six Pioneering Naturalists, Jeannine Atkins
Out of School and Into Nature: The Anna Comstock Story, Slade, Suzanne
Seeds of Change: Wangari's Gift to the World, Jen Cullerton Johnson
Look Up!: Henrietta Leavitt, Pioneering Woman Astronomer, Burleigh, Robert
Life in the Ocean: The Story of Oceanographer Sylvia Earle, Nivola, Claire A.
Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World, Ignotofsky, Rachel
Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine, Wallmark, Laurie

Robot, Go Bot! (Step into Reading Comic Reader), Rau, Dana M.
Rhoda's Rock Hunt, Griffin, Molly Beth
Rosie Revere, Engineer, Beaty, Andrea

Yes I might have gotten a little carried away, although when you see the list you'll understand it could be much worse. Most of these books are too old for her yet but I can put them away for now. I just didn't want to forget. The other books I did not get yet are:
