NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 14

She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World 
by Chelsea Clinton & Alexandra Boiger 
May 2017. 32 pages.

From Amazon: "Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard... She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small... This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor—and one special cameo."

My thoughts: This book is a great way to introduce young kids to a handful of important women in history. It includes an introductory page, then the 13 women -- each with a short paragraph about their troubles, "she persisted" highlighted in the story, and a quote from the woman -- then a concluding page. I even learned a few things. :)

Recommended Age: 4-8 years
