Author: Chelsea Clinton
Publisher: Philomel Books
Copyright Date: 2017
Age Range: 4-8 years old
Lexile Level: 1170
This book describes the lives of 13 incredible women who persisted to change the world. This book will inspire young girls to stand up for what they believe in even if it goes against what others believe is right or wrong. The book encourages girls to persist just like the women throughout our history. Each woman in this book is briefly described, illustrated and a quote of theirs is provided to the reader. At the end of the book, the author encourages the reader to persist just like the women in the book do, because everyone's voice is important.
Children will enjoy this book about strong women and it will hopefully encourage them to grow up just as strong as the women in the book. I think young girls will especially enjoy this book, but boys who are interested in history will also find interest in this book. Adults are sure to love this book as well and it would be a great storytime book choice to read in schools or libraries during women's history month in March.
