Girls Solve EverythingLatest Book

Girls Solve Everything is Catherine Thimmesh and Melissa Sweet’s second book in the Girls and Everything Series (I just gave it that name).  The first one was Girls Think of Everything celebrating ingenious inventions by women. This book is about women who saw a problem and creatively designed a solution.  Each chapter highlights a female entrepreneur who not only created a super interesting business but also solved a humanitarian problem with that business. It’s a fascinating book that can lead to more discovery when you do a little googling about the problem, the solution, and the woman behind the solution.

I love the way that Catherine Thimmish can take non-fiction topics and make them interesting for kids and grownups alike.  She has published both board books and books for grade school kids. Thimmesh’s book on paleoartistry, Scaly Spotted Feathered Frilled: How do we know what dinosaurs really looked like? teaches children about how these scientists/artists make sure they accurately represent dinosaurs. If you like this book, you may like pairing it with one of these dinosaur outings: Dinosaurs Around Town: Find Dinosaurs in the Twin Cities.
