School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Diagnosed at an early age with autism, Temple Grandin (b. 1947) grew up at a time when there was generally little care or regard for those like her. However, Grandin's mother was able to secure the therapies and education her daughter needed to thrive. ("She was 'Different, Not less,' they all finally agreed.") Grandin would eventually design animal husbandry techniques to more humanely treat livestock in the meat industry. Rhyming verse and appealing cartoon illustrations capture Grandin's spirit while providing an exciting, informative look at her remarkable life. Invaluable back matter contains a letter from Temple, fun facts, a time line accompanied by family photographs, and an insightful biography. Even the bookmaking pays tribute to its subject, with endpapers covered in adorable cartoon cattle. Reminiscent of Meghan McCarthy's quirky nonfiction, this is the first volume in a promising new series introducing readers to remarkable women in the sciences. VERDICT A fine addition to nonfiction -biography -collections.-Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Library © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
