Great book with lots of information -i liked the  diversity in the book and although the book is aimed at children, I definitely learned a lot .  

The one page per individual format breaks the information into more digestible format - I do think considering the younger audience more photos ( and more colourful - but that may just be the eARC ) would have been better .

I enjoyed learning about 100 women who shaped history. I loved how it was broken down it induvial sections about each woman.

This book recently came to my attention on NetGalley even though it was published a number of years ago. That does not take away from it being an interesting and wide-ranging title and resource. This would make a great gift for a child who is interested in biography and history.

The range of the entries is impressive, beginning with Hatshepsut and ending with Rigoberta Menchu. Many of these women were known to me but a number were not. Each entry is short and interesting. Children who are intrigued may want to look for longer biographies of some of those featured. Of course, this title can be dipped into in any order although it is organized by chronology. There are trivia questions and project ideas at the end.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Kids for this title. All opinions are my own.

This biography offers children an opportunity to learn about 100 women from history in short 1 page texts. I love that the book includes so many great women and gives an equal amount of space and attention to each. I think it is the perfect opportunity for readers to be introduced to lots of options for a project before choosing one to learn more about, or even is just a great opportunity to read about a large variety of women at one time. Each page includes biographical information, including names of other notable people such as husbands or colleagues, an illustrated portrait and a world map showing their location. I could definitely see this text in my Grade 3 classroom library and would highly recommend it to parents and teachers of children in the age 7-12 range. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!

An educational and interesting book for kids and adults.  It's easy to read and interesting enough for kids to enjoy. 
 .It covers a diverse group of women and offers lots of interesting facts about them.   A great introductory book for kids and inspirational book for girls and boys.

Thanks to the publisher for the arc.
