This book teaches people that girls can be great inventors too. Girls have invented things that people could not live without today. I think that Catherine Themmish wrote this book to tell how smart women are. I read this book to do a project on it and I really enjoyed this book! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the history of women inventors. This book tells about famous women inventors and what they have invented throughout the years. The author of this book loves unordinary things. She does not like anything that is normal. This book has some of the best inventions that have ever been invented! A couple of these inventions are the Apgar Score, Windshield wipers, and Kevlar. These inventions have helped so many people through the years. I think that people need to give women more credit for what they do. Everybody loves chocolate chip cookies, right? Well, without Ruth Wakefield, we would not have a delicious treat that goes great with a tall glass of milk! Men would not have even been able to come up with these inventions that women have made. Girls are very creative and intelligent, so give them more credit!
