Themes: alphabet book, women, biography
Opening: American history is filled with stories of brave and powerful men…but have you ever wondered where the women are?
Summary: (from my library catalog) Presents a collection of short biographies of notable American women representing each letter of the alphabet, from Angela Davis and Billie Jean King to Yuri Kochiyama and Zora Neale Hurston.
I like this book because: I’m a woman too! And I believe it’s always more important than ever to educate both boys and girls on the impact both sexes have on the world (And I hope to see the day where I don’t have to say that!). The vibrant graphic illustrations are a powerful plus. Every non-fiction book should be this exciting!
