I wrote and illustrated this paper doll book about Maria, a girl who dreams of being a scientist. I created costumes with tools for four scientific careers: Marine biologist, paleontologist, naturalist, and chemist. Each of the professions is described in simple, accurate terms to stimulate a child's imagination.
