Girls Think of Everything: Stories of Ingenious Inventions by Women
Girls Think of Everything is an inspiring story about how women have changed the world. I like this book because it includes many day-to-day inventions (windshield wipers, paper bags, and chocolate chip cookies)—all made by women.
The book includes 15 different inventions. I enjoyed reading all of them. As I read, I felt excited that women and their accomplishments were finally being revealed.
The book is well written and was extremely interesting. The illustrations are cute and funky. I like the cover most because it pictures a girl with hundreds of inventions on her head. The picture symbolizes girls’ creative ability.
My favorite part was about Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta. They made LuminAID for homeless people after a natural disaster. LuminAID is an inflatable, waterproof, solar-paneled lantern.
Another invention I liked was Scotchgard made by Patsy O. Sherman. Scotchgard is a stain repellent made for different types of fabric. Patsy made it when her assistant’s white canvas shoe had a big ugly stain on it.
I would recommend this book to third through seventh graders who like to create and have fun, but anyone can read it. I recommend this book because it stirs up our creativity. Hope you like it.
