Have you ever wondered about the missing pieces of information in history textbooks?
For example, the role of women played during war or the significant impacts (scientific, medical, musical, theatrical, etc.) women had on the world?!
As a kid, I was always fascinated by the diverse stories of women who have had a hand in transforming lives and changing history.
Since March is Women’s History Month, I’d like to take the opportunity to share some great books that list the achievements and influences of women hundreds of years ago as well as more recently!
There are so many books available in the library that show how women shaped the world. Whether they were fighting for equal rights or the right to vote, helping slaves escape to freedom, or trying to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday, women had a role in influencing history.
Here are a few books to look at:
Jan Pinborough; illustrated by Debby Atwel
Laurie Halse Anderson; Illustrated by Matt Faulkner
There is so much going on in this book! But I like to think that there is something for every reader. The short stories about individual women help me remember each woman’s contribution to the American Revolution.
