Description

"Wow! I wish I had Kimberly Brown Pellum's new book, Black Women in Science: A Black History Book for Kids, when I was growing up. This is a fabulous book with many facts told in a straight forward manner that keeps the reader interested in the narratives. I like this very much and will recommend it to my friends and children."--Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, professor and chair of the Department of African American Studies at Temple University and author of African American People: A Global History

"What a beautiful homage to all of the black women in STEM that have and continue to contribute to making the world a better place. An inspiration for all ages, races, and sexes that says you are important, your contributions matter, and you should strive for greatness no matter the adversity you may face. Well done!"--Margo Rollins, MD, pediatric hematology and transfusion medicine specialist

"Black Women in Science earns two A's--one for accuracy and one for authenticity! As an education professor, I can't emphasize enough how important those two characteristics are in quality children's literature. Dr. Pellum delivers facts about noteworthy historical figures in a relatable voice and an easy-to-read text. Young readers will enjoy making connections between themselves and the women in the book, while also being inspired to explore STEM topics in their daily life. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to increase interest and engage a child in STEM development."--Dr. Sylvia Y. Cain, Professor of Education
