  • Strong and timely messages

    by on

    Fascinating and revealing stories with strong messages for young girls everywhere. This book is particularly timely for my four year old who has already been told by her male peers that she "can't do that because you are a girl" . She is inspired by the many who have come before her, have been told the same thing in many different ways and have gone on to achieve great things anyway. We loved making connections between people and countries and moments in history, but skipped over the few less age-appropriate stories about people involved in violent situations, for now.

  • Love this book!
