In kitchens and living rooms, in garages and labs and basements, even in converted chicken coops, women and girls have invented ingenious innovations that have made our lives simpler and better. Their creations are some of the most enduring (the windshield wiper) and best loved (the chocolate chip cookie). What inspired these women, and just how did they turn their ideas into realities? Features women inventors Ruth Wakefield, Mary Anderson, Stephanie Kwolek, Bette Nesmith Graham, Patsy O. Sherman, Ann Moore, Grace Murray Hopper, Margaret E. Knight, Jeanne Lee Crews, and Valerie L. Thomas, as well as young inventors ten-year-old Becky Schroeder and eleven-year-old Alexia Abernathy. Illustrated in vibrant collage by Caldecott Honor artist Melissa Sweet.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Melissa Sweet, Catherine ThimmeshPublisher: Houghton MifflinPublished: 03/11/2002ISBN: 9780618195633Pages: 64Weight: 0.45lbsSize: 8.80h x 7.90w x 0.40dReview Citations: PW Notes and Reprints 03/04/2002 pg. 82Publishers Weekly 03/04/2002School Library Journal 12/21/2018 pg. 74Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 43785 / Girls Think of Everything: Stories of Ingenious Inventions by WomenReading Level: 7.4 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 2
