An alphabet book of heroines, starting with activist Angela Davis, and continuing with Billie Jean King, who broke the glass ceiling in tennis. C is for Carol Burnett, who defied assumptions about women in comedy; D is for Dolores Huerta, who organized farmworkers; and E is for Ella Baker, who mentored Dr. Martin Luther King and helped shape the Civil Rights Movement.
And the list of great women continues, spanning several centuries, multiple professions, and 26 diverse individuals. There are artists and abolitionists, scientists and suffragists, rock stars and rabble-rousers, and agents of change of all kinds.
The bold paper-cut illustrations will appeal to younger and older children alike, while the text is Common Core aligned for students grades 3-8.
