Review by SARA
I have 3 daughters and we just love to hear about the fantastic things that women are capable of! We especially love when they stand for truth and justice all within a biblical context. This book is a great continuation of the series and goes over 10 women that did extraordinary things. My kiddos really enjoyed each chapter and were very eager to see who the next leading lady would be. There was even some women I did not know about, so this book was a treat for the whole family. This is certainly a wonderful read aloud, or reader for upper elementary. It has vocabulary words throughout in bolded text and a corresponding curriculum section in the back.
Amazing series!
Review by Dustie
What a neat little book to introduce ten special women in history. Florence Nightingale, Amelia Earhart, and others are included in this book. The stories are inspirational and encourage development of good character.
This book is great for independent reading, as it is fun and has definitions for words that may be unfamiliar or difficult for younger readers to understand. It would make a great read-aloud or morning basket addition. These stories would also be really fun to include with corresponding history lessons, and there’s even a list in the back of the book that notes potential books to pair each chapter with.
Overall, I highly recommend this entire series of books for every homeschool library. They’re such a fun way to learn bits of history.
