Girls Think of Everything

Girls Think of Everything

by Catherine Thimmesh Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

In kitchens and living rooms, in garages and labs and basements, even in converted chicken coops, women and girls have invented ingenious innovations that have made our lives simpler and better. Their creations are some of the most enduring (the windshield wiper) and best loved (the chocolate chip cookie). What inspired these women, and just how did they turn their ideas into realities?

Stylish illustrations complement the fascinating stories of some of history's most clever inventors, all of whom happened to be female.
