"June Almeida, Virus Detective! The Woman Who Discovered the First Human Coronavirus" by Suzanne Slade (Sleeping Bear Press)

June Almeidaโ€™s story was so inspiring, and I truly loved digging deep into the places where she lived, her papers and the technology she used. Iโ€™m grateful Iโ€™ve had the chance to illustrate this book about this wonderful scientist and creative woman.

Thank you Terry Jacobsen for your review.
