Gr 6-10 -These three titles mix personal information about the woman with scientific skills and information related to her field. Fact boxes go into greater detail about terms such as "greenhouse gases" or "genes." Each volume is filled with full-color photographs of the subject and her work. Students will be comfortable with the style of these books, and the easy reading level makes them accessible for even nonscience-oriented students.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI
