Did you know Toll House Cookies were created accidentally in an old Toll House in Massachusetts by a woman hurrying to make a tasty snack for her patrons? And did you know that Liquid Paper® (or white-out) was invented because of one small typing mistake? Often overshadowed by famous male inventors, women have also made many significant contributions to science and industry.

This audiobook profiles women like Stephanie Kwolek who created Kevlar® body armor. You'll also hear about women like Ruth Wakefield, whose Toll House Cookie recipe has satisfied the sweet tooth of millions, and Grace Murray Hopper, a mathematician and Navy officer who pioneered the science of computer programming.

The stories of these women, and many others, will make you believe that nothing is impossible. Catherine Thimmesh's Girls Think of Everything won an IRA Award for outstanding literature for young people. Download and start listening now!

    " A good starter book for kids interested in inventions. Though this book focuses on things invented by women, it's still got some interesting info for any budding inventors. My favorite new bit of info: Kevlar was invented by a woman. Who knew? "

    " my favorite book when i was little. it's the aspiring-feminist-book. Did you know women invented windshield wipers, ice-cream cones, and even kevlar? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/10/2013

    " An interesting and inspirational book. I just wish the title were different (why must we pit girls against boys -- wouldn't you want boys to read the book and recognize the accomplishments of women inventors?) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 1/20/2013

    " This was a great little read - would be perfect for "tween" - it was written more for that audience, I think. However, I still loved the history, the ingenuity and the fortitude of continuing on with an idea (especially when everyone else tells you it's silly or not worth it). "

    " A fabulous book. It was well written in a fun manner telling of how women have been inventors forever. It tells when the first woman was allowed a patent. This is a good book for you women readers to read and know how inventive women are! "
