25 Tales of Women in Music
by Rebel Girls
Rebel Girls who love music, this one is for you. Here is an entertaining collection of stories about women in music. Some of those featured are Ell Fitzgerald, Joni Mitchell, Queen Latifa and Lizzo. There were other musicians with whom I was not familiar; a few of them are Evelyn Glennis, Laura Jane Grace and Nandi Bushell. All in all, twenty-five women to get to know. Music is defined in this title to include singers, those who play instruments and even those who work in the music industry.
The book’s introduction is written by Joan Jett. Following this are two page spreads for each woman; these include interesting biographical information and an illustration. The published book will also have q codes for those who want to learn more.
All in all, this is a wide ranging and well produced title. It joins many other Rebel Girls books that offer kids the chance to dream big.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Rebel Girls for this title. All opinions are my own.
