Much has been said about this crowd-funding success story already, but this book of creative non-fiction by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo deserves the praise.
Filled with 100 tales of extraordinary women it is overflowing with inspiration – mountaineers, activists, musicians, scientists and so many other pioneering women who have smashed glass ceilings, lived courageously and chased their dreams. Each story is written in simple and engaging language for children, and illustrated by one of 60 talented female artists from all over the world.
I love that there’s a page at the back for writing your own story and drawing your own portrait. An inspiring gift for yourself and every son and daughter. We can all be part of sharing these important stories and ensuring their place in history.
