Back of Book:
When young Temple was diagnosed with autism, no one expected her to talk, let alone become one of the most powerful voices in modern science. Yet, the determined visual thinker did just that. Her unique mind allowed her to connect with animals in a special way, helping her invent groundbreaking improvements for farms around the globe!
The Girl Who Thought in Pictures: The Story of Dr. Temple Grandin is the first book in a brand new educational series about the inspirational lives of amazing scientists. In addition to the illustrated rhyming tale, you’ll find a complete biography, fun facts, a colorful timeline of events, and even a note from Temple herself!
I am so excited that the life of Dr. Temple Grandin is being told in picture books. Her life is nothing short of inspiring! “The Girl Who Thought in Pictures” is a well written and researched story. The text rhymes which makes it a perfect book for early readers. I also love that the book teaches children about Autism in a realistic yet simple way. The book shows readers that people with Autism are not “weird” just different. There is a beautiful note to readers in the back of the book encouraging them to find out what they are good at and follow their dreams. The back of the book also has a timeline and mini biography, perfect for book reports and research projects.
