The Girl Who Thought in Pictures

Visual treat!

Temple was born in Boston and stood out from the crowd. Her preferences and aversions differed from those of other babies her age. Additionally, she faced difficulty expressing herself verbally for an extended period. However, her mother showered her with unconditional love and provided unwavering support. Unfortunately, the first school she attended failed to recognize her uniqueness, prompting her mother to send her on a rejuvenating break to her aunt's ranch. It was during this time, surrounded by animals, that Temple's life took a transformative turn.

We picked this book for its theme. This book narrates the life story of Dr. Mary Temple Grandin, an animal behaviorist. Despite being autistic, Temple's determination and support from her loved ones enabled her to overcome all obstacles and reach remarkable achievements. The illustrations in this book, designed for children, are skillfully crafted, adding depth to the narrative.

The Girl Who Thought in Pictures by Julia Finley Mosca eloquently honors Temple Grandin, the esteemed animal behavioral scientist, with stunning visual illustrations by Daniel Rieley.
