    Now with regard to picture book biographies, I always tend to check if there is an author s note included and yes to usually read this first as well as to check if the book in question also presents a suitable bibliography And indeed, when I perused the excellent and informatively detailed supplemental note in Patricia Valdez Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor The Woman Who Loved Reptiles and noticed the for a picture book quite extensive biblio

    Back in the days of long skirts and afternoon teas, a little girl named Joan Proctor entertained the most unusual party guests Slithery and scaly, they turned over teacups They crawled past the crumpets I loved this story about Joan Proctor, the little girl of Edwardian England who studied and loved her pet lizards and grew up to be the first female curator of the Reptile House at the London Zoo This story gave me a wonderful sense of what

    This inspiring story about a woman scientist hits just the right notes From the first page, where the author writes, while other girls read stories about dragons and princesses, Joan read books about lizards and crocodiles, the reader wants to find out what happens next And the book comes full circle with the type of dragon Joan eventually loves The illustrations perfectly complement the story This book is a winner and will be a wonderful addit

    The biographies written for children today are wonderful and farinteresting than anything I came across in my childhood back in the 1970s.I had never heard of Joan Proctor before and I learned a lot about her passion and accomplishments during her short life.The narrative is short enough to keep a younger child s attention, but still filled with information about this herpetological pioneer.The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish the people s fac
