Review: Maria Merian, Mary Anning and Maria Mitchell lived decades apart, but they shared a common passion for scientific discovery. Challenging the social expectations and narrow gender roles of their day, the girls' curiosity, bravery, and peserverance led to important breakthroughs in the fields of biology, astronomy, and geology. Told in verse, these biographical tales are inspirational as well as informative. This compelling "biographical novel" will pique the interest of young readers to learn more about these subjects.
