Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by Vashti Harrison
First line: This book grew out of a project I began during Black History Month.
Summary: Written and illustrated by the author this collection of short biographies of historic African American women is perfect for children and adults alike. The subjects cover famous women like Harriet Tubman, Ella Fitzgerald and Katherine Johnson.
Highlights: The illustrations are beautiful. The artist had children in mind when drawing them so she drew each woman as a child. I love the little additions that represent their career or interests. I think this would a great way to introduce or further explore the amazing achievements and role models of African American women.
Lowlights: Nothing. It is perfect!
FYI: A great read for Black History Month or Women’s History Month.
