Shark Lady is a biography about a girl named Eugenie Clark. She has loved sharks since she first saw them in an aquarium and has wanted to swim with them and study them. Many people disagreed with Eugenie and thought sharks were scary or ugly. They also thought women should not be scientists. She grows up to prove them wrong and goes on dives and research sharks. This book was written by Jess Keating and illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns.

Hannahhh7 It was published in 2017 and is a part of The Amelia Bloomer Book List. I love this book's illustrations and think it is a great read! 5h

Gah, I just love her books so much! For a novela titled Below Zero there's a whole lot of 🔥 plus the funny, whipsmart banter that I've come to expect from all of Hazelwood's characters. My only problem is that this is the last of the series 😭

Chelleo I have no good reason to start this knowing I have 2 10+ hour long audiobooks currently checked out, but did I download it and start listening anyway? Of course I did! 😂 5d
Zuhkeeyah This one was my favorite of the three novellas. Banter was on point. 5d

Her dream was as big as a whale shark.

I like that this touches on how people discouraged her from studying what she wanted to, but she persevered anyway.

This story is about Eugenia Clark. She started off loving the ocean and especially sharks. She wished that others could see sharks the way that she did. People tried to bring her down and change her mindset. She did not let them and perused her passions about sharks.

Queen of Physics: How Wu Chien Shiung Helped Unlock the Secrets of the Atom by Teresa Robeson was published in 2019. This is a great book about a young girl who fights through prejudice in the U.S. to become the “Queen of Physics“. This book has won the Asian/Pacific Book Award. Great read!

She was “DIFFERENT, NOT LESS,” they all finally agreed.

I think it is important to have books that highlight different disabilities, and especially ones that are positive and encouraging. This book is certainly that. It also exposes children to more scientists that they may not have known about .

This story is about a scientist, Temple Grandin, who has autism. Through rhyming and expressive illustrations, it tells the story of how she became a scientist working to create more humane farms. It highlights some different characteristics of people with autism, and how they don‘t have to hold someone back from doing big things.
