She Persisted in Science by Chelsea Clinton Book Review

A STEM-focused addition to the #1 New York Times bestselling She Persisted series!

Throughout history, women have been told that science isn’t for them. They’ve been told that they’re not smart enough, or that their brains just aren’t able to handle it. In this book, Chelsea Clinton introduces readers to women scientists who didn’t listen to those who told them “no” and who used their smarts, their skills and their persistence to discover, invent, create and explain.
She Persisted in Science
 is for everyone who’s ever had questions about the world around them or the way things work, and who won’t give up until they find their answers.
With engaging artwork by Alexandra Boiger accompanying the inspiring text, this is a book that shows readers that everyone has the potential to make a difference, and that women in science change our world.
This book features: Florence Nightingale, Rebecca Lee Crumpler, Ynes Enriquetta Julietta Mexia, Grace Hopper, Rosalind Franklin, Gladys West, Jane Goodall, Flossie Wong-Staal, Temple Grandin, Zaha Hadid, Ellen Ochoa, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha & Mari Copeny, and Autumn Peltier, Greta Thunberg & Wanjiru Wathuti

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in the series that I have read. In this series, I received a board book. It kind of confused me at first with this being a board book. The intended age is baby through 3. This book also has a hardcover, audiobook, and a Kindle book.  The book says that it is abridged for tiny feminists. I have a family of readers and we love our books. The age group for this topic and the length of the book in my opinion felt a bit of a stretch for the intended audience.

Putting all that aside. I loved the book. I love finding books that talked about science and even pointing out women who persisted in a profession that has been historically a men’s profession. I don’t consider myself a feminist nor care for that label. There are a few things we can agree to disagree with in the book. You can weed it out while reading.

The book starts with Florence Nightingale, Gladys West, Jane Goodall, and more modern women.  The book covers some women who you don’t typically see when talking about science and women. It gives a wide range of science too which I find interesting.

The book ends with three women with Climate Change and how they are demanding that the government needs to do more action to protect our world. So, you will have to decide for yourself if the book is right for your family with some of the things of feminism and the government being more involved in climate change.
