Women have been making history since the beginning of time. Youngsters aren’t always aware of the important contributions women have made. This book, designed for middle-grade students, tells about 50 fascinating women who have improved the lives of many working as political leaders, artists, writers, musicians, teachers, healers, scientists, athletes, champions of rights, and more. Each spread in this oversized book spotlights one woman and tells her story with the perfect amount of text, illustrations, photographs, and quotes–all laid out on decorative pages. The writing is casual and inviting with a hint of a scholarly treatise.

Kids reading this book will forget they are learning; they will simply enjoy the fascinating stories. Katherine Halligan’s lively writing and good research shine on every page. Illustrator Sarah Walsh supports the text with pictures that highlight important events. These highlights help readers connect with the featured person and better understand the times in which they lived. Herstory belongs in classrooms, libraries, and homes so young people can spend time learning about these inspirational women.
