thoughts

I really enjoyed this book. While I knew most of the women there were a few fascinating scientists that I’d never heard of. I really appreciated the variety of sciences that were represented. We all expected Marie Curie, but there were also botanists, mathematicians, computer scientists (love Grace Hopper), paleontologists, and so forth. The book is also lovely to look at. The illustrations and colors are just so pretty and fun. I can’t imagine an ebook version capturing how neat this book is. This book is perfect for teaching young girls about important women in history. Hell, it’s perfect for showing anyone how much women have contributed to science and technology. This is one I’ll definitely be passing on to my niece.
