If you're searching for fascinating kids books about female scientists, look no further! This well-rounded list has the best books about both famous and obscure female scientists throughout history as well as fictitious, mighty girls who create experiments to find answers to their hypotheses. Whether you want to know about girl who changed the course of history back in the day from her interest in science, like Caroline Herschel, or a scientist like Jane Goodall who is still living (85 years old) in today's 21st century, this list has just the books to inspire future scientists. This list has a variety of books for ages 0-12, but you can easily filter the list to narrow down the list for a specific age group. If you're looking for books on female scientists for your baby or toddler, try toggling the list to view just the board books, which are more durable for little hands (and, I'll just say it, mouths!). Filter the list for picture books to find favorites like "Ada Twist, Scientist" and gems like "Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code." For books geared for early readers and tweens, filter for chapter books to find great reads like a young reader edition of "Hidden Figures" as well as scientific adventures with Ada Lace! We hope you enjoy these stimulating reads about female scientist. Let us know if there are any titles you would add!
