Finding Wonders: Three Girls Who Changed Science by Jeannine Atkins


My Comments:

I received this book in the latest The YA Chronicles subscription service! I don’t honestly know too much of what this book is about, but the synopsis sounds really interesting. This book is also really short, so it won’t take long to get through!

The Book:

Publication Date: September 20th, 2016
Publishers: Atheneum Books for Young Readers
Genre: Children’s Poetry Historical Fiction
Page: 208

Goodreads Synopsis:

A novel in verse about three girls in three different time periods who grew up to become groundbreaking scientists.

Maria Merian was sure that caterpillars were not wicked things born from mud, as most people of her time believed. Through careful observation she discovered the truth about metamorphosis and documented her findings in gorgeous paintings of the life cycles of insects.

More than a century later, Mary Anning helped her father collect stone sea creatures from the cliffs in southwest England. To him they were merely a source of income, but to Mary they held a stronger fascination. Intrepid and patient, she eventually discovered fossils that would change people’s vision of the past.

Across the ocean, Maria Mitchell helped her mapmaker father in the whaling village of Nantucket. At night they explored the starry sky through his telescope. Maria longed to discover a new comet—and after years of studying the night sky, she finally did.

Well, that is it for this weeks Goodreads Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas yesterday!!
