I really liked the fact that this book included women from really far back, up until the present. I learned a lot about each of the women…some of it was a little bizarre. I think this is a great book for everybody to read, but I’m hoping that the boys will check it out more than the girls. The only downside was the background made it hard to read about some of the women. My youngest daughter liked the cartoon characters, while I really liked the real photos of them.

  1. I know some students that would love to read a book like this. It’s good to read about things that happened in real life.

    Great review Allyson, it’s great to see some non-fiction reviews once in a while. Was this a graphic non-novel?
