Little People, BIG DREAMS: Women in Science

Author: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara

Meet three inspirational women from the world of science: Ada Lovelace, Amelia Earhart, and Marie Curie! This boxed gift set of three hardcover books from the internationally best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series introduces little dreamers to the lives of these incredible women who worked in the field of science…and changed the world. 

In these remarkable true stories, learn how three women overcame hardship to achieve great success in science. Ada—despite growing up without a father and becoming very sick with measles as a child—went on to become the world's first computer programmer. Amelia challenged conventional stereotypes, showing the world how brave and adventurous a woman could be by setting aviation records and undertaking dangerous flying missions. Marie Curie was unable to go to college because she was a woman, but became a renowned scientist and eventually won the Nobel Prize for Physics. Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the woman's life.
