Much needed representation
This book is phenomenal. My 7yr old daughter loved reading about the different career paths in medicine. The illustrations are beautiful and eye catching. It keeps my daughter engaged. This is such a great way to get real information into children's brain. I appreciated that the author explained all of the titles so that my daughter could understand what each person does. I can't wait for the boy version for my son! He loves this book as well.
Support Girls in Medicine
The book is so beautifully illustrated. We loved how each girl grows up to be a healthcare hero just like one that impacted her life. We love this book and hope it reaches lots of little black and brown kids and inspires them to pursue a career in healthcare!
Wonderful book for the inquisitive minds!
I enjoyed this book from start to finish! The images are so captivating and the MedGirlSquad's stories were inspirational. I believe many kids will enjoy this book just as I did! I enjoyed reading the stories of different girls of color interested in the medical field. Representation matter! This book allows children to express their individualities and become phenomenal healthcare workers.
A Work of Art!
I am completely amazed by this special edition of Girls Medicine. The illustrations are so beautiful and I love how it covers the diversity of disciplines within the medical field. I will be gifting this book to a young woman who is interested in pursuing a career in medicine and I know that this book will surely inspire her. I look forward to seeing and purchasing more books by this author/illustrator/future doctor!
