This was the first book I chose to read with my daughters (ages 9, 11, and 11) for our literature unit for homeschooling this school year. It highlights 26 noteworthy American women, one for each letter of the alphabet. The title pretty much says it all.
My girls and I really enjoyed this book. I’m embarrassed to admit that there are several women in it whom I was not familiar. Each page includes a cool painting of the women highlighted, and a good deal of interesting facts. The women portrayed are very diverse, in historical placement, ethnicity, and contributions.
It’s a perfect feminist non-fiction for the ‘tween and younger teen set.
