National Geographic Kids: The Book of Heroines
The Book of Heroines is beautifully presented with full color images and illustrations. The information is educational with a healthy dose of personality so the reader doesn’t feel like they are reading a textbook of boring facts.
The author does a wonderful job bringing a sense of balance to the theme of feminism as each section offers a selection of “Daring Dudes” to complement the Heroines. And the addition of “Outstanding Animals” gives the reader a glimpse into the world of adorably heroic animals.
A solid look at a variety of heroic deeds from ancient history to present day leaders, The Book of Heroines will teach and entertain all at once. Highly recommended reading for young girls and a handy tool for teachers too.
