In continuing with my theme of Women’s History Month, I might as well keep highlighting female authors and books about women, right? 😁
I was reading this book to our toddler yesterday, and she had the most adorable and hilarious commentary. I was STRUGGLING trying to explain to her what being a physicist (& a million other words) means using words and concepts she knows. We got to Ada Lovelace and she says “what she do?” Me: “she studied math.” She: “whaaaaaat?? What math?” Me: “math is like counting numbers and adding numbers.” She: “ohhhh I like counting too. She counts numbers?” Me: “uhhh...yep 😬😂” I tried to explain that many of these women tried to find answers to hard questions. I think a teeny TINY bit got through to her because when we got to Jane Goodall she said, “oh she like monkeys. She ask ‘why monkeys say oo oo ah ah?” 😂 Needless to say, this book is very fun to read with children or on your own. The illustrations are gorgeous, and I have IMMENSE respect for people like Rachel Ignotofsky who write AND illustrate their books. Shoutout to my SIL @echo_chocolate for sending this our way for Christmas this year. We’ve loved it. Ignotofsky has some other science and “Women in..” books that are worth checking out as well.
Any other science themed books for kids out there that you can recommend?
Gorgeous visual profiles of 50 trailblazing science pioneers. Love your world? Thank these women! Maybe you’ve heard of Marie Curie or Ada Lovelace. But what about the rest? There’s 17th century scientist and illustrator Maria Sybilla Merian, who went all the way to the rainforest to draw butterflies and other wildlife. There’s daredevil Katia Krafft, who studied volcanoes (and died in a lava flow). Or how about Katherine Johnson – the African-American NASA maths genius who figured out the path of the Apollo 11 Moon Mission? Brainpower, bravery and beauty: they’re all in this book of brilliant science!

This was the very first drawing I did for my Women In Science illustration series. 🧪⚗️🔬
5 years after first doodling this in my sketch book and 4 books later I am so happy that this one drawing started my career as an author. I am so thankful that sharing women’s history and spreading scientific literacy is what I get to everyday. ❤️📚🎨🔬Thank you everyone for your support and excitement for education! #rachelignotofsky#womenshistorymonth#womenshistorymonth2019
Como recomendación para el #8M os dejo esta preciosura de libro: se trata de cincuenta mini biografías de mujeres científicas que realizaron grandes descubrimientos, aderezadas con ilustraciones bellísimas.
This book is beautiful and wonderful. @rachelignotofsky is crazy talented. I guess I bought it for our whole family, but in my heart... this book is allll mine.
There is an article in January’s Savor bundle from @wildandfree.co called “A Mama’s Morning Basket”. It was the first thing I read out of that bundle and it spoke very clearly to my heart. I’ve since been considering a collection of items, ready and on hand, that are just for me.
So far I have a small stack of books on my nightstand, and a bag of my favorite journaling supplies started. I’m hoping to find a market style basket for the whole collection. I want to be able to easily drag it down to the camper over the summer.
I miss reading. I miss my art journal. I miss my pens and sheets of paper. And I think, part of being in the middle of some extreme minimizing around here (for us anyways, I suppose levels of anything depend on the individual) to get us used to tiny living, has shown me what I just, absolutely, without question, want to keep. There’s beauty in that knowledge. Yes, we’re getting rid of a lot. But the things that stay... they’re even more special for that reason.
This book is a keeper. If you haven’t thumbed through this yet, give it a look.
What books are you reading (or hoarding... 😉) right now?
Durante a semana postei nos stories algumas ilustrações... Gente, o livro é esse da foto, hehe e simplesmente lindo! 💕Com resumos sobre grandes cientistas, linha do tempo, instrumentos de laboratório... 👍 .
Great books for all your feminist needs. 🧜♀️I’m just about to start Bad Feminist but I’m sure it’s great because Roxane Gay so I’m including this here 👸🏾👸🏿👸🏼👸🏽Most of these are great starter books but I wanna read more “hardcore” and “advanced”/academic feminist books, both fiction and non-fiction. If you have any suggestions, please let me know! Bonus points if they’re written by WOC and/or those from the LGBTQ+! (Also: pls read #begumrokeyasakhawathossain ’s classic. It’s wonderful.)
Hahaha, não posso deixar de postar sobre a DIVA 💕.
