Who Says Women Can't Be Doctors?: The Story of Elizabeth Blackwell - Tanya Lee Stone and Marjorie Priceman

In the 1830s, Elizabeth Blackwell asked the question Who Says Women Can’t Be Doctors? (Holt, $16.99). When a dear friend suffering from illness said that she would prefer to be examined by a woman, Elizabeth was inspired. Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, she used the determination that had characterized her from childhood to go to medical school and become the first female doctor in the United States. In her most recent work of non-fiction, Sibert Medalist Tanya Lee Stone recounts the life of a person who refused to be daunted by the prevailing gender roles of her time. Much-loved illustrator Marjorie Priceman’s colorful and animated gouaches add a sense of whimsy and joy to this story of strength and courage. Ages 5-8. KLP
