It’s Children’s Books Week. I’m the mother of a 4 year old boy who loves libraries and being read to. And I like to follow what’s happening in the lit (including kidlit) world. So, I thought I’d share a book every day this week that I recommend.
Today’s book is Rad American Women A-Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries Who Shaped Our History and Future by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl. This book gives a brief summary (one page each) on each woman, so it’s a good introduction to a wide range of women you may not know about. As a woman with young family members who have autism, I was especially happy to see Temple Grandin for the letter T. It’s 64 pages long and Amazon says it’s for ages 8-16 year olds.
Here’s a Goodreads link for a full description and sample.
