So excited that our first pre-pub review has hit! And what an honor to be a Staff Reads pick from Bookish. Thank you Myfanwy for the lovely review and for so perfectly understanding some of the reasons I created The Historical Heroines Coloring Book: Pioneering Women in Science from the 18th and 19th Centuries.
“I grew up knowing that my mother was told she could not become a veterinarian when she was a child in the 1940s because that “wasn’t a job that women do” and that one of my sisters was discouraged from studying engineering in the 1980s by her high school guidance counselor because it “wasn’t a field for girls” (this didn’t stop her). So for these and many other reasons, I was delighted to find The Historical Heroines Coloring Book: Pioneering Women in Science from the 18th and 19th Centuries. It’s thrilling to see just how many pioneering women in science there were and that there is diversity among them. Each woman has a page-long biography and then a page of her image to color in. This book isn’t just for children, though, as I definitely learned a thing or two. For instance, did you know that Beatrix Potter was an expert in fungi? Me neither. But I do now.” —Myf
