4. Maria Sibylla Merian: Artist, Scientist, Adventurer
Even artists need to learn science to be good at their craft. If you have a young dreamer in your life who needs a little nudge to pay just a little bit more attention to science, this beautifully-illustrated book is the one for her. Maria Sibylla Merian was one of the world’s first entymologists, who also studied botany, was a celebrated artist, and travelled the world to learn more about insects.
