"Librarians should make it a priority to put this edition into their collections." "Teachers also may feel heartened by the final chapter, which provides statistics on women studying science, and on growth in different fields. There's a specific "you can do it" angle, with lines such as "female scientists of the past built the foundation on which today's women can build...little girls growing up today can be engineers and astronomers, doctors and biologists, physicists and inventors."
Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
"...these volumes, in which the final chapters focus on career opportunities for women in the sciences, will encourage girls to embrace STEM."
School Library Journal
"An educational inspiration for the next generation of female leaders."
