Rosalind Franklin (Little People, Big Dreams)

Little Rosalind was born in London to a Jewish family who valued education and public service. Having studied physics and chemistry at Cambridge University, Rosalind moved to Paris to perfect her life’s work in X-ray crystallography. She then moved back to King’s College London, where she would work on finding the structure of DNA with Maurice Wilkins. But after the two of them disagreed, Maurice used Rosalind’s “photo 51” to create a DNA model with Francis Crick — and Rosalind’s contribution was not acknowledged until after her death. Today, though, she's recognized for her critical role in one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century.

In this empowering book from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series, kids will learn about Franklin's important contributions to our understanding of DNA — and the entrenched sexism in the sciences that affected how they were treated. With stylish illustrations and additional information in the back, including a biographical timeline and historical photos, this is a must-have introduction to a scientist who's finally getting her due.
