I consider Jim Henson as one of world’s top Creative Geniuses. I was familiar with the Muppets but it was only a few years ago that I actually watched the movies featuring Kermit and the gang. I also became fascinated with “The Guy Who Played with Puppets.” I loved that the boy who loved telling stories went against what was practical by society’s standards and pursued his passion. In turn, he was able to make so many people happy- and will continue to do so long into the future!
The Story of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female doctor, is an inspiring account of how one girl paved the way for other girls to become more than the seamstresses or teachers that were considered to be viable career options for them. The author’s notes at the end give a little bit more information of how her life was like after she became a doctor. Inspiring!
