As a teacher, these stories were short enough that the students I teach liked to read them. Some of the stories really surprised the students.

We bought this book so that we could read about girls who changed the world during Women's history month. We read a chapter each night at dinner to our two daughters and so far the whole family is enjoying it. Great book for helping girls realize what they can do!

Very inspirational and fascinating Jan. 8 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of information given in a simple interesting way. I liked the illustrations because they made the women appear nice and friendly and approachable.

I bought this book for my daughter so she would be inspired and know that women can do great things.

This book was not boring and kept her interest.
