Reviews
Nobel Prize Winners

"These attractive titles each feature six women who have had an impact in their fields. many names will be familiar but each book also includes some women who are less well known...Each book concludes with brief notes about hte contributions of 13 to 15 other women. An abundance of appealing black-and-white and full-color photographs and occasional maps and drawings illustrate the text....useful for short reports or to supplement other resources." —School Library Journal, 09/98 "...The information is easily accessible and is the stuff of which reports are made..." —Booklist, 09/98 "Especially notable and exciting is the Women in Profile series...Each (of the titles) are highly recommended introductions." —Mid-West Book Review, Children's Bookwatch, 07/98 "...colorfully photo-illustrated, magazine-style bios, which are sidebarred with "Key Events" and "Backgrounder" columns and pertinent quotations. Readers easily overwhelmed by large blocks of type will be particularly attracted to this series..." —The Kobrin Letter, Spring '98
