Summary:

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. "An outstanding collective biography of women and girls who changed the world with their inventions."-School Library Journal
