With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world.

These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!


Review: 

I didn't know who this was but was familiar with her work. Oops. This brings the feeling of Georgia O'Keeffe through the illustrations and information very well. Enjoyed this and was surprised it was already ending, ha.

Recommend: Yes, great for in the classroom or home library.  Easy to use in a class lesson or as part of a lesson depending on the age group you're working with.
