Not all the women in this book are household names, but their accomplishments are, nonetheless, worthy of being known. They come from all different parts of the world, and their contributions range from scientific discoveries to artistic pioneering. The illustrations are majestic and beautiful, and the complexity of these women's accomplishments are excellently pared down to one sentence. Whether a gift for a newborn or for an older toddler, this is a fantastic introduction to some inspiring and extraordinary women.
