Review

Stone’s book recounts the story of the inspiring first woman doctor from her childhood through her education. Elizabeth Blackwell’s short biography is a wonderful read. The Author’s Note describes Elizabeth Blackwell’s entire life from her birthplace to in her successful career and family background. It’s definitely worth reading to children as a reminder of challenges in life and the ability to overcome. The colorful, pastel style and simplistic pictures illustrate the Elizabeth’s true story. I loved the fast read!

Book would be great as an introductory tool in a social studies or science class. Recommended. Rebekkah Reisner, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
