Women Discoverers: 20 Top Women in Science

We rated this book:


How many female scientists do you know? I only knew about one of these women before reading this wonderful book, which provides great information in a graphic novel form.

The graphics are awesome. I love how they summarize several women’s lives in a fun way. Some of the pages feature several panels while others feature just one spread, depending on how much information is known about the women.

The text was a great length, providing just enough information to show the women’s lives and accomplishments, but not too much to overwhelm the reader.

My favorite ladies to learn about were Irene Curie, Rosalind Franklin, and Mae Jemison. Irene was Marie Curie’s daughter and she continued her parents’ work, winning a Nobel Prize herself. Rosalind Franklin was a pioneer of molecular biology and majorly contributed to modern DNA research, although her efforts weren’t recognized until after her death. Mae Jemison was an American astronaut. She did a variety of things before finally pursuing her dream of going into space.

This book is great for mid-elementary to lower middle school readers. I think it would make a great addition to home and school libraries.
