The Historical Heroines Coloring Book: Pioneering Women in Science from the 18th and 19th centuries (HISTORICAL-HEROINES.COM), available October 2, 2017.

The Historical Heroines Coloring Book: Pioneering Women in Science from the 18th and 19th Centuries celebrates 31 women who passionately pursued their talents in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, often in the face of gender discrimination. Each woman scientist is featured on a double-page spread that includes exquisite illustrations by Kendra Shedenhelm and short biographies written by award-winning author Elizabeth Lorayne. How will you color each portrait to best bring these courageous, brilliant, and inspiring women scientists to life?

Imagine: With 31 heroines, you can color a portrait a day — and in a month you’ll know a great deal more about the remarkable women whose courage and discoveries opened the door to a larger universe.

Some of the women include: Ada Lovelace, Alice Ball, Amalie, Emmy Noether, Anna Atkins, Anna Botsford Comstock, Annie Jump Cannon, Beatrix Potter, Caroline Herschel, Dorothea Bate, Ellen Swallow Richards, and many more.
