Did you know a woman invented the windshield wiper? Or that the first American woman who was a self-made millionaire was a WoC? Do you want your daughters, nieces, little sisters, or other young women/girls you care about to know about these admirable women? Have I got the book for you.
Girls Think of Everything, subtitled “Stories of Ingenious Inventions by Women,” covers centuries of inventions by women. While the book isn’t comprehensive, and is aimed at a young audience, I learned many fascinating tidbits about women inventors and the products they created.
The book is aimed at late elementary to early middle school level readers, with plenty of lovely illustrations and photos. Younger kids would probably enjoy having some of the invention stories read aloud to them.
