Three Female Scientists We Should All Know More About
by Page Turner

Finding Wonders: Three Girls Who Changed Science by Jeannine Atkins

Synopsis

Maria Marian, Mary Anning, and Maria Mitchell all challenged the limitations of science and society to make their discoveries known to the world.

Review

As much as I loved learning about these scientists, the format of this book wasn’t quite for me. Even after finishing, I’m not so sure how I feel about stories like this being presented in poetry format. Don’t get me wrong, I love poetry. The only way I can think to word it is that I’m still iffy on the idea of linear stories formatted as a collection of poems – this book didn’t really sell it for me. Some points in the book felt rather choppy.

Despite all that, I really did enjoy the factual content of this book. It was interesting to learn what life was like when these women were alive and how different it was from today’s world. And, if you’d like to learn more beyond Finding Wonders, the author has included her references at the end of the book.

Overall, I appreciated the knowledge I gained from this book, although the writing wasn’t exactly for me.

Yours in love and literature, Page.
