Praise for Incredible Women Inventors

"Readers will walk away with a wealth of facts and anecdotes that bring the stories of these great inventors to life." - Resource Links

"Intermediate-level teachers could use this book when discussing biography and for shared reading or read-aloud. Character education traits, such as perseverance and courage, could be highlights easily. The issues of gender bias and discrimination in these women’s lives would lead nicely to a class discussion. Overall, Incredible Women Inventors is a high-quality, interesting read." - ETFO Voice (Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario)
