Check out some of these books with children to learn about the many, different things that women have done to make change in the arts, sports, community, and media. Uplift the many achievements and accomplishments from inspirational women on every page

After you are finished reading, ask a child in your life, “What is something new that you learned about women’s contributions to the world?, In what way, big or small, did women change history?” and “How did they set the stage for other people after them?” 

Together, we can help all children build the key language and literacy skills they need to take on the world.
