I am always on the lookout for children's books with strong real-life role models and I was so pleased by these chapter books. These go much more in-depth than the younger picture book versions of similar stories and have much more elevated language. It also doesn't hurt that they have vibrant colors and beautiful illustrations. I can't wait to buy these for the kiddos in my life!
