Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Women of Steel and Stone features 22 thoroughly researched and engaging profiles of architects, engineers, and landscape designers, describing these groundbreakers' strengths, interests, and challenges as they were growing up and starting their careers, and what they achieved. Inspiring a new generation of girls who are increasingly engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields, the biographies stress hard work, perseverance, and creativity. Set against the backdrop of landmark events such as the women's suffrage and civil rights movements, the industrial revolution, and more, the profiles offer not only important historical context but also a look at some of the celebrated architects and engineers working today. Sidebars on related topics, source notes, and a bibliography make this an invaluable resource for further study.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well designed and constructed, just like its subject! 5 décembre 2013
Par Lisa Getty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Anna Lewis's book is a solidly researched, informative and well organized resource covering the history (from the very early days to more contemporary stories) of women entering the fields of architecture and engineering. Including photos (of the women profiled along with examples of their work), as well as citing additional suggested sources for further reading on each subject, the chapters strike a perfect balance of not feeling daunting or overwhelming, while simultaneously being substantial enough to stand on their own. Particularly impressive is how Lewis so effectively crafted an intriguing compilation that is "meaty" enough for more mature readers while at the same time presenting everything in completely accessible manner for younger audiences as well. Indeed, "Women of Steel and Stone" is a fascinating read both for adults interested in the subject (or hey, even if they're not!) and for kids alike (who may very well be inspired to travel down one of these career paths themselves after learning so much from this book). I figured just from reading the author's bio saying she teaches classes on (among other things) monster making, that I would enjoy this book... and I'm sure you will too!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring, Motivating and Fascinating Read - One of the Best Non-Fiction Titles for Kids 31 janvier 2014
Par Debbie S. Glade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Women of Steel and Stone is one of the best non-fiction books for kids I’ve ever read. One bonus of Chicago Review Press non-fiction titles is that they are so interesting, they appeal to parents too. This book delves into the lives of 22 women who have left their marks on the world of architecture, engineering and landscape design – all fields that have been historically male dominated. Each woman's story is incredibly compelling and fascinating. My personal favorite is the story of Emily Warren Robeling, who was instrumental in the building of the Brooklyn Bridge in the 1800s. Since most people experience discrimination of one sort or another, reading about women who overcame extraordinary obstacles to accomplish greatness is incredibly motivating. When children read the biographies they will see that what all these women had in common were a good education, supportive parents and unfaltering perseverance no matter what came their way. This book will inspire all those who read it to pursue careers without limitation and aspire to use their skills to the fullest. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Each of these 22 terrific women's stories is different 22 janvier 2015
Par leah pileggi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
How can we get more young women to look at engineering and architecture as careers? Spreading the word about WOMEN OF STEEL AND STONE is a start. Each of these 22 terrific women's stories is different, but perhaps a young girl will identify with one of them and think This is what I want to do!

To school guidance counselors: make this book available to all high school girls. Let them see what success and career satisfaction looks like!
