Limited Capacity seats available

Through poetry and figurative language use in children’s picture books, readers can learn to enter the world of women scientists who forged the path of scientific discovery and innovation. This review explores biographies of historical and contemporary women scientist picture books written in prose and poetry. The goal is to provide entry points from which teachers can use children’s literature as mentor texts to engage their learners in the areas of STEM and model the scientific method.
