Good that there's at least one children's book about Noether. Too bad it's so doctrinaire. In the end, she arrives at Bryn Mawr and dies; the illustration is of the main library on campus.

This is the true story of Emmy Noether who helped make Einstein’s theory of relativity the solid indestructible physics principle it is today. Emmy was a mathematician in a time when women were not allowed to be educated, let alone allowed to teach. Because of this, she did great things for science, but most of the credit for her work was taken by others. The men were allowed to publish and be famous. This is an interesting biography, but it is a tad long. It is also a bit confusing for the age it’s written. Overall, it is a nice work and introduces children to someone they not heard about before, and for that it was a nice read.… (mer)

I love non-fiction picture books, and lucky for me Helaine Becker has crafted a great one about a very talented lady!

Emmy Noether was a mathematician, and it seems barely anyone has heard about her. As a smart, Jewish lady she didn't become all that popular (mostly due to the times). Despite this fact, this lady managed to solve some of the mysteries of physics (which is just insanely cool, let's be honest!). She created two important theories that changed math and physics, yet barely anyone knows about her.

I think Grade 3 and up would appreciate this book. Middle schoolers would probably find this far more interesting, but young, advanced readers could also love this. It's educational, has a cool story and is just fun! It could be a great bed time read or for reading buddies! I highly recommend it!

The illustrations have a unique vibe to them and give the book personality. The pictures don't always have a background and cover white spaces where the words aren't. I really liked it, because it stood out to me compared to other books.

Five out of five stars!

Thank you to NetGalley and Kids Can Press for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
