Just published-She Changed the World

She Changed the World: First Achievements by Women, Told in Their Own WordsI have blogged on a number of books that can inspire children to reach for their dreams. What makes this one special is that each woman featured speaks directly to the reader in her own voice . The scope of the book is broad; for example there are entries by Hillary Clinton, Sheryl Sandberg, Ava DuVernay, Shonda Rhimes, Serena Williams and Gabby Douglas. among others. As you can see the book features contemporary women in politics, business, government service, television and sport, along with other career choices. Each entry includes photos in addition to the text. The book also has a time line of women’s history beginning in 1920 when the 19th amendment was passed. This book deserves a spot in school libraries and on the shelves of girls who want to think about their possibilities in life and plan for their futures.
