A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women

Lynne Cheney and Robin Preiss Glasser collaborated on America: A Patriotic Primer, which captured the imagination of American children and became a national best-seller. Now they turn their hands to A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women and bring the great women of American history to life!

Filled to the brim with words and pictures that celebrate the remarkable (although often unmarked) achievements of American women, this book features soldiers, scientists, performers, writers, entrepreneurs, politicians, quilt makers, pilots, and many more. Cheney uses the alphabet book format not to focus on 26 women, but to introduce many: "O is for SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR and others who were first" also features Wilma Mankiller, first woman chief of the Cherokee Nation; Jeannette Rankin, first female member of Congress; and Nellie Tayloe Ross, first woman governor.

Readers of all ages will take Abigail Adams's words to heart and "remember the ladies" once they read the stories of these astonishing, astounding, amazing American women.

Description

"Soldiers, scientists, performers, writers, entrepreneurs, politicians, quilt makers, pilots... as author Lynne Cheney writes, 'America's amazing women have much to teach our children — and much inspiration to offer us, as well'.... Glasser's playful illustrations are lively and busy, inviting readers to explore Abigail Adams's farm or the crowded city block that houses 'V is for VARIETY,' with its DNA lab, dance studio, dentist office, and 'PERSONS at WORK' sign. Snippets of information about each featured woman give a taste; ideally, readers will seek more in-depth biographies about the historical figures who pique their interests." — Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com Reviews
