They paved the way: 100 Women Who Shaped World History

by Gail Meyer Rolka

This book recently came to my attention on NetGalley even though it was published a number of years ago. That does not take away from it being an interesting and wide-ranging title and resource. This would make a great gift for a child who is interested in biography and history.

The range of the entries is impressive, beginning with Hatshepsut and ending with Rigoberta Menchu. Many of these women were known to me but a number were not. Each entry is short and interesting. Children who are intrigued may want to look for longer biographies of some of those featured. Of course, this title can be dipped into in any order although it is organized by chronology. There are trivia questions and project ideas at the end.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Kids for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
