There are loads of fun pictures and facts about these people and their achievements and contributions to the world.
I am pleased with the book and also enjoyed reading it myself. At the back of the book there is a list of some words that children may find that they are not familiar with such as suffragette, radioactive, persecuted, aztecs and others. I think it is a book that will help curious young minds learn plenty about these women. Some of the names in the book are Mary Seacole, Anne Frank, Rosa Park, Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo and many more.
The printing is very good and the illustrations are great too.
Originally bought as a present for a friend, but it is so good we are now keeping.
My son has found it very interesting and has sparked very interesting conversations.
One if them makes her mum read it to her every night before bed, so much so that it's driving her mad!
The other quotes parts of the book back to me. For example she says 'Rosa Parks wasn't allowed to get on a bus because of her skin but she did it anyways' for that alone it's money well spent :)
The book is well written and easy for a child to understand with beautiful illustrations.
Recommend for girls and boys.
