A wonderful gift for any child at any age. The Book of Heroines is full of tales of the heroines we know and the ones we’ve never even heard of. Political leaders, familiar faces from the sports arena, historical legends, women of the ancient world, peacemakers, and leaders in their fields of study, there is something here to inspire every reader—young and old (and a great book for families to share together).
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.
Good Points
A wonderful book for mothers and daughters
