Who Says Women Can't Be Computer Programmers?: The Story of Ada LovelaceWho Says Women Can’t Be Computer Programmers?: The Story of Ada Lovelace by Tanya Lee Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ada Lovelace gets another nonfiction picture book treatment and I’m glad her story is being told and that more and more people are getting to know about her contributions in mathematics and computer programming. It’s great to see how her creative mind helped her with her scientific side.

Who Says Women Can't Be Doctors?: The Story of Elizabeth BlackwellWho Says Women Can’t Be Doctors?: The Story of Elizabeth Blackwell by Tanya Lee Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!

    I’m so jealous you have read the Ada Lovelace book. Still trying to find that one at the library.
