ISBN
9780525645931
Real-life 7-year-old Sophia Spencer was bullied for loving bugs until hundreds of women scientists rallied around her. Now Sophie tells her inspiring story in this picture book that celebrates women in science, bugs of all kinds, and the importance of staying true to yourself. Sophia Spencer has loved bugs ever since a butterfly landed on her shoulder--and wouldn't leave --at a butterfly conservancy when she was only two-and-a-half years old. In preschool and kindergarten, Sophia was thrilled to share what she knew about grasshoppers (her very favorite insects), as well as ants and fireflies... but by first grade, not everyone shared her enthusiasm. Some students bullied her, and Sophia stopped talking about bugs altogether. When Sophia's mother wrote to an entomological society looking for a bug scientist to be a pen pal for her daughter, she and Sophie were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response--letters, photos, and videos came flooding in. Using the hashtag BugsR4Girls, scientists tweeted hundreds of times to tell Sophia to keep up her interest in bugs--and it worked Sophia has since appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, and NPR, and she continues to share her love of bugs with others.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Sophia Spencer, Margaret McNamaraPublisher: Schwartz & Wade BooksPublished: 02/11/2020ISBN: 9780525645931Pages: 44Weight: 1.25lbsSize: 11.70h x 9.30w x 0.60dReview Citations: Booklist 12/01/2019 pg. 51Kirkus Reviews 12/01/2019Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 01/01/2020School Library Journal 01/01/2020 pg. 95Publishers Weekly 03/16/2020Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 508968 / Bug Girl: (A True Story)Reading Level: 3.5 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
