It’s a scientific fact: Women rock!
A charmingly illustrated and educational book, New York Times bestseller Women in Science highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from the ancient to the modern world. Full of striking, singular art, this fascinating collection also contains infographics about relevant topics such as lab equipment, rates of women currently working in STEM fields, and an illustrated scientific glossary.

I Love Science: A Journal for Self-Discovery and Big Ideas
Colorful and charmingly illustrated, the Women in Science Journal encourages young women and girls to ponder the world and the daily ins and outs of their lives. Opening with a short reference section that contains basic equations, the periodic table, basic HTML codes, and a measurement converter, the journal then invites the user to write and dream through writing prompts like, "What is a challenge you've overcome recently?" and inspirational quotes from notable women who've achieved greatness in the science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM) fields, such as famous primatologist Jane Goodall's, "Only when our clever brain and our human heart work together can we reach our full potential."
WOW! This is Ella's new favorite book by far! She enjoyed the art on the cover, stayed engaged throughout, (even though her first words were, "Wow, that is a big book!") and had her saying things like "It made me feel like I want to be like them."
It was a learning experience for the whole family. We each took away something different from each story and found inspiration in these amazing women. -Taylor, mother to Ella (age 7), Fort Worth, TX
A gentle warning from the Hullabaloo Crew: Women in Science contains scientific discoveries and theories that will bring up A LOT of questions on subjects that may or may not be appropriate for some children. Readiness depends on maturity, level of curiosity of the child, and willingness to discuss on the adult reader's part. We think this book could be invaluable to the child inspired by STEM material but younger readers should be overseen by a trusted adult.
