The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes Review

  • Bethany M. Edwards

    As a reading specialist and early elementary educator, finding books with diverse female role models for my students, as well as my two biracial girls is my biggest mission. Bookshelves are overwhelmingly full of adventures and accomplishments of men (fiction and non fiction). This book celebrates a powerful woman in medical history that may not be otherwise known if it were not for this beautiful picture book. The pacing of this rhyming biography is spot on to keep a reader's attention. The voc As a reading specialist and early elementary educator, finding books with diverse female role models for my students, as well as my two biracial girls is my biggest mission. Bookshelves are overwhelmingly full of adventures and accomplishments of men (fiction and non fiction). This book celebrates a powerful woman in medical history that may not be otherwise known if it were not for this beautiful picture book. The pacing of this rhyming biography is spot on to keep a reader's attention. The vocabulary is just right for young emerging and independent readers to soak in and learn from Dr. Bath and her life's work. I love reading this book because of the quality of the writing, but also to see a strong black woman fight for the right to sight for everyone. Her human rights battle is so critical, and kids will love learning about her travels around the world in pursuit of her dreams. Against so many obstacles that her peers and classmates simply did not have, Dr. Bath's story has been beautifully described by author Julia Finley Mosca so that impressionable girls who start to lose self confidence at just 6 years old (according to studies) may just have a glimmer and sparkle of hope that they too can become a shero!Be sure you don't miss the fun facts and tidbits from the author's interview with Dr. Patricia Bath, as well as the historical timeline at the end of the book.Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions, as always, are my own.

    How is it possible that I have not heard of Dr. Patricia Bath until I read this book? Granted I don't spend a lot of time in the world of eye doctors, but still. She is awesome. Julia Finley Mosca articulates Dr Bath's laundry list of accomplishments with a poetic, rhyming style that carries you through her life story in a way that is far from the boring, droning resume reading style of so many children's book biographies. Instead, you are left in awe of an incredible woman and her barrier break How is it possible that I have not heard of Dr. Patricia Bath until I read this book?

Instead, you are left in awe of an incredible woman and her barrier breaking career inspired by a chemistry set, encouraging parents, and an inquisitive girl. My daughter loved this book. She saw her self in the curious little New Yorker who plays with her brother and I can only hope she saw how much amazing potential the world carries for people who drive, bravery and perseverance like Dr. Bath.**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion**

    Dr. Patricia Bath became an eye doctor at a time when neither woman nor people of color were often found in medicine. This rhyming biography explains how she became interested in science, faced all forms of discrimination, became an advocate for eye related public health, and developed new tools and techniques. A fabulous timeline at the end helped me tie her life events together in a way that was more meaningful for me as an adult. A great choice for elementary school biography collections.

While the story itself weaves a narrative and isn't packed with dates and facts, the additional features make it a great choice for those 3rd and 4th grade biography projects.
