Summary: a biography of 26 inspiring women from A to Z.

Review: This book is an amazing collection of biographies about fabulous women from Amelia Earhart to Zora Neale Hurston. There is a fantastic array of ethnicities, professions, hobbies, and religions to delight any reader from ages 6-12. It is inspiring and delightful to read these little snippets about so many strong women's lives and challenges, joys and struggles. The illustrations show great creativity with their mixed media, incorporating bits of lace, maps, typeset, pressed flowers, etc. in the vivid watercolor pictures.

SLJ says: "There is sophistication in both the quotes and in the art, encouraging repeated readings"
Kirkus says: "An inspiration and a delight"

Jodysegal Thanks for the introduction to this book. It seems like a great one for the library- and another one I wish that I had written...
