" Charmingly illustrated--and who doesn't want to hear about a real life tea party at the zoo with komodo dragons? " said.

" I cute little biography about an amazing woman who I wasn't aware of. A great story with wonderful pictures to accompany. Perfect for lovers of lizards and other scaly folk. :) " said.

" Awesome book! I'm still scared of Komodo dragons, though... " said.

" An inspiring picture book biography that is also a fantastic read-aloud with beautiful illustrations. " said.

" This is an interesting story of an early woman scientist that isn't commonly known about. I especially liked the sections about how growing up, Joan Procter, with her lifelong love of reptiles, wasn't the typical girl of the early 1900s. " said.

" Joan Proctor, Dragon Doctor is my favorite non-fiction kids book of all time! An extremely well written and beautifully illustrated account of a girl that wasn’t like the rest. (Also an example of a girl that struggled with health issues and still lived to the fullest). I’ll be gifting this book to my child’s teacher soon! " said.

" This is must-have biography for the elementary classroom. Patricia Valdez does a fantastic job decsribing Joan Procter's contribution to science. Her story will inspire readers to pursue their dreams, even if they're quite different from their peers' goals. This would pair well with Heather Lang's Swimming with Sharks, Jeannine Atkins' Finding Wonders and Jacqueline Kelly's The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. " said.

" From the moment I saw the cover of this book I could not wait to read it. A female scientist? Awesome. Who works with reptiles? I love it! I did not know Joan Proctor's story before reading this book, so reading it was a real treat for this science nerd. But don't let my nerd status turn you off; kids will love reading about a woman who broke down barriers and worked with Komodo Dragons back in the days "of long skirts and afternoon teas."Note: I read this as an ARC/ F & G " said.
