Review: Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky

Special thanks to Blogging for Books for sponsoring this post.

I am always on the lookout for books that inspire my daughter to reach for the stars. Though she loves all things pink and princessy, she's also fascinated by science. Her future career dreams change daily, but lately she has been sharing with me that she wants to be an artist and a scientist. I was thrilled to receive a copy of Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky to share with her.
 
Women in Science presents the achievements of fifty women in STEM, from the ancient to the modern world. Each entry features charming and quirky art and infographics, making this book as fun as it is interesting.  I am learning, too, as I read this book to my daughter, about the amazing, trailblazing women that have paved the way. From primatologist Jane Goodall to lesser-known pioneers such as Katherine Johnson, the African-American physicist and mathematician who calculated the trajectory of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the moon, this book highlights the can-do spirit and strength of 50 "fearless pioneers who changed the world."
If you're looking to inspire the next generation of female engineers, biologists, mathematicians, doctors, astronauts and physicists, or if you're just interested in learning more about the women who have revolutionized our world, check out Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky.
