Temple Grandin is a world-renowned scientist, animal-behavior expert, and autism spokesperson — but as a child, she didn't speak, and she struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload. Her mother was told to put her in an institution, but she knew her daughter could achieve great things. Supportive family and mentors helped Grandin discover her love of animals and her talent for science and design, and she realized she could use her way of thinking and looking at the world to invent and achieve great things!
Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book biography that teaches young readers about this animal welfare and autism awareness advocate! Beloved author Lyn Miller-Lachmann highlights how Grandin used her talents in unexpected ways — and how different perspectives benefit all of us. With black and white interior illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this early reader biography is a compelling introduction to this pioneering scientist.
