With its simple yet powerful text, this book will inspire young women everywhere.

Palacio; Maya Angelou; Amelia Earhart; Bessie Coleman; Sally Ride; Mae Carol Jemison; Simone Biles; Gail Devers; Babe Didrikson Zaharias; Gertrude Ederle; Jane Addams; Irena Sendler; Wangari Maathai; and Harriet Tubman.

"Twenty-four women leaders are pictured as models of working ‘like a girl’ in this rhyming inspirational poem.... Leaders who overcame challenges, such as Helen Keller and Tammy Duckworth, ‘prevail like a girl.’ Artists, architects, and writers like Frida Kahlo and Zaha Hadid all ‘create like a girl.’ Pilots and astronauts ‘soar,’ athletes ‘train,’ philanthropists and activists ‘change the world like a girl.’ Minibiographies at the end of the book introduce the major accomplishments of each featured leader, helping this book to double as a fun read-aloud and an informative lead-in to further research." — Kirkus Reviews
