Instead of just studying history, let's think about HerStory too! In this uplifting and inspiring book, children can learn about 50 intrepid women from around the world and throughout history. Telling the stories of their childhood, the challenges they faced, and the changes they made, each gorgeously illustrated spread is a celebration of girl power in its many forms.
With a range of pioneering careers — from astronauts to activists, musicians to mathematicians and many more — young readers will be inspired to follow their own dreams and to make the world a better place. Compelling, motivating and brilliantly illustrated in equal measure, this is the perfect introduction to just some of the amazing women who have shaped our world.
"The duo devotes each bustling, scrapbook collage–style spread to a different subject, layering biographical details against expressive portraits, photographs, and ephemera. Halligan makes little distinction between figures of the distant past and those more contemporary, underscoring how change makers throughout time share a common bond.... Halligan and Walsh offer approachable educational content about lesser-known subjects in a warm and vibrant visual presentation." — Publishers Weekly
