The book design and pictures are very good! I have only good things to say about the graphics and pictures. But the English is poor in the writing. Having one page to e.g describe Florence Nightingale written in poor English i.e it does not praise the person and celebrate their achievements well enough. I could write:- e.g J.B, She was born poor and sold mangoes and became a famous mango seller. Well, first, there is nothing interesting and nothing to inspire in this.
This is no doubt a good idea. The pictures are great. The design is great. They should have found someone who writes better to write it!
I also work in a school and we are looking at purchasing this book to use in our school library to inspire all children, to reach for their dreams. Very inspiring and a must buy
My only concern is that in this book there is a transgender boy, who feels he should be a girl as he loves pink sparkly things. In my opinion, this is not suitable for young readers.
To conclude, this is a wonderful book, with phenomenal illustrations that every girl will love and read many times. If you are considering buying this as a book, then I recommend you do as any girl would treasure this forever.
This is my 100% honest review and everything written above is my opinion.
