Here is another excellent biography for kids. This time readers will learn about how young Gloria Steinem became a well-known and capable advocate for women’s rights.
Even adults may learn some things about Gloria that they did not know. For example, for many years, she and her family lived in a trailer and traveled. This all changed when Gloria was ten and her parents divorced. It was after this that young Gloria was exposed to the ways in which boys and girls were treated differently. This was not okay! Gloria’s life purpose became to stand up for women. She became a journalist and went on from there. Her contributions to feminism are now well-known.
The illustrations in this title are lovely and evocative. They add to the enjoyment of the book. All in all, this is another excellent entry in a series that invites children to aspire. As always, there are sections of additional information at the end of the book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
