The Story of Alice Ball

By Jennifer Lerud
Picture Books

When ten-year-old Alice Ball moved to Hawaii with her family, she had no idea what the future had in store. Her dedication to learning and blessing the lives of others would soon change the world as she instructed students and discovered a cure for leprosy that previously had been unknown. Largely untold for many decades, the true story of this incredible woman is one that should be shared.

This book is a suggested read-aloud book for The Good and the Beautiful Chemistry Science unit.
