Description

A boldly illustrated and fascinating collection of profiles featuring the women and men who were pioneers of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.

You likely know that Mae Jemison was the first African American woman in space. And maybe you know that Jane Goodall was the first human accepted into a chimpanzee community. But you might not know that Alan Turing was the first person to introduce the concept of artificial intelligence. Or that Tu Youyou was the first Chinese woman to win a Nobel Prize.

Who Did It First? 50 Scientists, Artists, and Mathematicians Who Revolutionized the World brings together all of these trailblazers into one stunning package. With both well-known figures and lesser-known heroes, editor Alex Hart, writer Julie Leung, and illustrator Caitlin Kuhwald celebrate the inspiring innovators who braved uncharted waters to pave the path for future generations.

Perfect for fans of Little Leaders, Women in Science, and Rad Women Worldwide, Who Did It First? makes a wonderful gift for any occasion and is a must-have for every young reader’s library.

Featuring Ada Lovelace, Mindy Kaling, Temple Grandin, Maria Tallchief, Riz Ahmed, and many others.
