Biography by Tanya Lee Stone -This is a wonderful biography about the first woman doctor, Elizabeth Blackwell. It is a beautiful story about how Elizabeth overcame many obstacles to make her dream of becoming a doctor a reality. I would use this book to introduce a unit on famous women. I would have my students each research and present information on a famous woman. I would use this book for grades 2nd-5th.
