Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Betsy Barnett
The fourth of a series of books depicting women scientists on the job, it also provides some background into each field of science, including educational requirements. Strong role models for girls such as Sallie Chisholm, a microbiologist and professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) who studies the importance of phytoplankton in our oceans, are described as having the strong attributes many of us associate with men. The book is well organized with the standard Table of Contents, Glossary, and Index sections. The addition of Contact Addresses and Internet Sites aids the interested reader who may wish to delve further. An important message for young girls entering the uncertain years of adolescence.
