    This book is so beautiful, in so many ways. The author has adorable illustrations on every page, and the mini biographies of these amazing women are just enough to pique your curiosity. Thankfully, she's added lots of different kind of resources at the back - I found myself looking in to quite a few of these remarkable stories. HIGHLY recommend for females of all ages - Inspirational.

    I thought this book was so cute! I really enjoyed reading small samples of the stories each women had to tell. I loved how this focused on women in math, science, dance, and art. I think it is important for young girls to start believing in themselves and reach for their biggest dreams. When I read this I kept thinking about my two young nieces (5 and 4) and their personalities and their dreams and passions well for this moment. I also love how w...

    A perfect companion piece to her first book, "Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History." The book is full of the stories of women around the world, whose contributions include art, math, science, astronomy, dance, costume design, computer programming, space exploration and more. I had not heard of many of the women included in this book; yet the contributions of the women in this book make the world what it is today.

The sentences are short and make the...
