This book is beyond awesome. There are so many things I love about it. One of the biggest qualities I admire about it is the diversity. Women in Science features so many different women that have accomplished astonishing things in their lifetime. Some of these women I have never even heard of before. I am now interested in numerous stories and I’ve already requested multiple books from my library about these women. A single page each just wasn’t enough for me! It just shows that a woman can accomplish a lot, even if most are against her.
The illustrations were just too adorable. I wish she would make a ‘women in science’ coloring book because I would have to own it. The author/Illustrator, Rachel Ignotofsky, is just too talented. She really blew me away. I think I’m going to give a few copies of this book to my family members for Christmas this year – it’s so inspiring for a young girl to read these things. I would like to add, I do think it’s aimed more at children or young adults. Not saying I didn’t enjoy it, but it didn’t have enough ‘meat’ for me. It did give me plenty to research! No doubts in my mind that this book deserves 5-stars!
