I bought this book for my two year old cousin the other day. He is not the target audience, but I was excited to find a book that was aimed at little ones with some incredibly important ladies in it.
She Persisted is an illustrated children’s book that features 13 women from American History who kicked a lot of butt. These women have shaped our country and done the unthinkable, in society’s eyes.
Each woman gets a splash (two pages, facing each other) with a beautiful portrait, their story, and a quote. It’s incredible.
I am so glad that this book exists. It is written with young girls in mind, but I gave it to my young, male cousin (and his parents) because my aunt is a very strong woman, and they are aware of the importance of strong women everywhere.
I really enjoyed reading this. I know it this is brief, but so is the book. I bought my copy at Target, and you can get it there or on Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. I highly recommend this for you and any little ones in your life; the paper (instead of cardboard) pages make it clear that this book isn’t for the incredibly young (5-6, probably) but that doesn’t mean we can’t read books about important ladies to our small friends. They need to know what everyone is capable of.
