GIRLS THINK OF EVERYTHING Stories of ingenious Inventions by Women

by | Read by Karen Zippler

Children Ages 8+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2000

Karen Zippler's delivery is crisp and clearly enunciated. She narrates at a steady clip and is so matter-of-fact and upbeat that she leaves no possibility for listeners to think that solving everyday problems might be a daunting task. When Becky Schroeder needs more light to do her homework in the back seat of the car, Zippler's tone champions the 10-year-old who eventually invents The Glow Sheet. Zippler projects determination as Stephanie Kwolek pushes her colleagues to work with her in testing a new polymer that becomes Kevlar. Ruth Wakefield's frustration is clear as she rushes to make cookies only to find that her "mistake" is delicious (Toll House cookies). For each vignette--from baby carrier to windshield wiper, liquid paper, and space bumpers--Zippler's enthusiasm encourages listeners to tackle being creative with gusto.
