21 posts | 12 read | 9 to read
The companion to Chelsea Clinton & Alexandra Boiger's #1 New York Times bestseller, She Persisted. Perfect for tiny activists, mini feminists and little kids who are ready to take on the world. Women around the world have long dreamed big, even when they've been told their dreams didn't matter. They've spoken out, risen up and fought for what's right, even when they've been told to be quiet. Whether in science, the arts, sports or activism, women and girls throughout history have been determined to break barriers and change the status quo. They haven't let anyone get in their way and have helped us better understand our world and what's possible. In this companion book to She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, Chelsea Clinton introduces readers to a group of thirteen incredible women who have shaped history all across the globe. She Persisted Around the World is a book for everyone who has ever aimed high and been told to step down, for everyone who has ever raised their voice and been told to quiet down, and for everyone who has ever felt small, unimportant or unworthy. Alexandra Boiger's vibrant artwork accompanies this inspiring text that shows readers of all ages that, no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the power to persist and succeed. This book features: Marie Curie, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Viola Desmond, Sissi do Amor Lima, Leymah Gbowee, Caroline Herschel, Wangari Maathai, Aisha Rateb, J.K. Rowling, Kate Sheppard, Yuan Yuan Tan, Mary Verghese and Malala Yousafzai. Praise for She Persisted * "[A] lovely, moving work of children's literature [and a] polished introduction to a diverse and accomplished group of women." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Exemplary . . . This well-curated list will show children that women's voices have made themselves emphatically heard." --Booklist "[She Persisted] will remind little girls that they can achieve their goals if they don't let obstacles get in the way." --Family Circle "We can't wait to grab a copy for some of the awesome kids in our lives . . . and maybe some of the grown-ups, too." --Bustle "A message we all need to hear." --Scary Mommy "This will be a great read for kids (especially young girls)." --Romper "We cannot wait for the launch of Smart Girl Chelsea Clinton's new book to help remind kids everywhere that the fearlessness that characterizes the thirteen women in the book is what has emboldened us to constantly strive for progress and justice." --Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

This is an amazing historical facts picture book written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Bolger! This book describes the challenges that thirteen women have faced and, in an inspirational way, how, by their persistence, became successful. Some of the women mentioned in this book include Harriet Tubman, Ruby Bridges, Helen Keller, Sally Ride, and, Sonia Sotomayor. #UCFLAE3414F19

ccipriati This book sends out a very important message to little girls, and even boys, to never give up on your dreams! This book would be great for a reader‘s theater or even an author's study. You can even use this book as an introduction to a historical feminist lesson in social studies. This book was also nominated for a Goodreads Choice Awards Best Picture Books Award! 4w
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 7.2, the strategy intended to optimize relevance, value, and authenticity. If I emphasize how each woman in the book didn‘t take no for an answer, fought to be heard and never gave up but, instead, continued to pursue their dreams and, in so doing, help to transform America, then that might inspire my students to follow their dreams no matter what obstacles or setbacks they encounter. 4w
ccipriati The ESOL Strategies that I think would be relevant for this book are 12, 17 & 24. All of these can incorporate further learning through hearing and seeing their expressions. By doing an RT we, as teachers, can make the lessons authentic and bring the materials to life!

As a self-proclaimed feminist, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Chelsea Clinton‘s NF book about women changing the world despite all odds being against them. I would use this book in the classroom as a readers theatre, as beautifully demonstrated in class the other day. The ESOL strategy I would use would be #28. Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. The UDL strategy used would be for perception, offering ways of

ebrown customizing information and offering alternatives for auditory and visual information. #ucflae3414f19 1mo
fabozzia I‘ve never heard of this book but it looks so good! I would absolutely want this for my classroom library! 1mo

I like this book. I know some don't, but I don‘t understand why. It is a primer on women around the world who have done amazing things, and helped make our world a better place. Some are artists, athletes, teachers, doctors etc. All had to overcome someone saying no. They persisted. And while some names like Malala, Rowling, and Curie, there are women who have not appeared in other books for children.

This book is written by Chelsea Clinton and Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. This book is a B and talks about many women through their different times where they fought for equality with education, freedom, creating medical tools and becoming a reporter this book entails girls and show women to not think anything is impossible. So these thirteen women that the book goes over have persisted. #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees I reviewed this book too! I think it would be so incredibly useful in the classroom. I love how many remarkable women are represented in this book and honestly it'd be so cool to read this during women's history month to better help them understand how far these women have all come. 4mo
Stephanie5 In my classroom I would present this book as a RA the reason being there are many words that would most likely have to give prior knowledge to and would be great for open ended questions. So with that being said I would use The ESOL strategy 20 to have students to see the words and put more up there while reading if necessary. The UDL that I would use is 3.1 which would help with the ESOL strategy and deepen understanding. 4mo
Stephanie5 http://www.booknerdmommy.com/persisted-mini-biography-activity-idea/ this is an awesome activity to increase their thinking. 4mo
DrSpalding A helpful resource however be sure to consult the publisher and author websites first. 3mo

I was introduced to this PB (B) at the KETSS! Immediately after reading it I knew I had to share it! It is a powerful book about 13 amazing women around the world who has truly made a difference! I would definitely use this as a RA! This book was written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. Definitely a must have for your classroom! #LAE3414Sp19

C.Austin This resource is a YouTube video of Chelsea Clinton. She talks about some of her favorite books. It is a short 2 minute video and I think it is important that students see the person behind the book! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XekANqA-joE 7mo
C.Austin ESOL Strategy 28: Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. UDL Principle 5.2: Use multiple tools for construction and composition. 7mo

I enjoyed this, and I thought a decent selection of women was chosen to represent women from around the world. I thought it was much better done than the first book, which I thought suffered from shoehorning the phrase "she persisted" in where it was inappropriate to use the word. This is one I would definitely be more inclined to recommend for someone looking for bio collections about women for younger children.

Got this cute yet intersectional sequel to Chelsea Clinton‘s first book as part of my donation to the Holiday Gift Drive at the local women‘s shelter. I like the diversity of the girls & women Clinton selected. #girlpower #kidsbooks #givebooks

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5 -I think I might like this one better than the first book. The author selected 13 very interesting international women! They are all wonderful role models that every little boy & girl should hear about early on in their life. I can‘t wait for my teachers to use this book and a variety of other books I purchased in their classroom. They are a great role models. I learned about a few new people in this book that I now want to research.

TGIF! A little light reading to wind down after a challenging week.

Tonight I have a book discussion for which I am uncharacteristically unprepared (I finished it about a month ago, and didn't capture my notes before I returned the book). I am, however entirely prepared for the wine & snacks segment of the evening. 🍷

Happy weekend reading, my dear Littens! 📚🍷💙

Of course mom, aka me, was taking way too long at the book fair according to the family. I am sending the son back tomorrow to pick up The Wishing Tree - the spring fair is 50% off so no guilt! (That‘s a cute Wonder tote.)
