With the holiday season coming up, chances are a lot of you will be scrambling to get gifts for the girls in your lives. I have talked about some other titles that collect inspiring women in one volume but Rachel Ignotofsky’s Women in Science makes things specific by focusing on amazing women doing science.
After the last week, you will all be aware than now, more than ever, we need to teach our girls to fight and to strive for their passions. We need to teach them they are worth more and are capable of more than what society wants them to believe. We have to empower them in all the ways we know how.
If your daughter is into science, give her this book. Women in Science does not just collect inspiring women but it also has index pages that detail the fields of science currently being studied, it provides time lines that illustrate the progress of women in science fields.
The book is beautifully constructed with gorgeous endpapers and quality paper. The illustrations are beautiful and the book provides layers of engagement as readers can spend hours poring through the additional information presented n the margins.
