This biography is a very interesting read as it is on a bear essentially who is inspired by the bear Winnie the Pooh. This book can be relatable for all students because of the popular character. This book offers real pictures of Winnie and Colebourn‘s journal.

This biography is very friendly for children as it informs them of the chemist, Marie Cutie. This book is a great introduction to women in science and their contributions. I really enjoyed the author‘s emphasis on the importance of Marie‘s accomplishments such as being the first woman to win a Nobel Prize.

Dreamers | Yuyi Morales
Pickpick

In this autobiography, Yuyi Morales shares her story of leaving her home and moving to the U.S. with her son. The text is very simple for children to understand and read along: the book offers an after note on why she came to the U.S. as well. The book uses illustrations to convey the story which can be easier for younger children to follow along and even more interesting to see real life pictures at the end!

The author displays how these four women were so successful and how they were able to overcome gender and racial issues as well.

This biography tells about how the Macy‘s Day Parade came to be and the mastermind puppeteer, Tony Sarge begins it all. This book is a very enlightened approach to all the obstacles Tony faced in making puppets for a parade. The author even adds a notes page at the end with pictures of Tony and his work.

This biography portrays the life of Katherine Johnson who was a mathematician. The author make a bigger emphasis on all that she accomplished than the hardships she faced such as racism and sexism. I loved how this book incorporates both her small and large accomplishments throughout her career.

Biography. The author does a great job in representing woman of color who are lesser known. These everyday woman are exemplified through the biographies to children as both hero‘s and role models. The authors use of animation picture would be relatable to children of younger ages as the text may be a little bit more challenging. The author also uses quotes from these women.

This book is a great take on slavery as it is kid friendly and has a great approach to introducing slavery: the idea that Henry ships himself off to freedom can be a less brutal approach on the reality of how things were for slaves. The book still provides a lot of important aspects/facts for children to know about.

Historical fiction. This story is of Betty Shabazz‘s middle school life and the effects her home life had on her as well. The book uses a great deal of language from the 1940‘s to tell the story. This really sets the tone for the bookN Racism is a strong theme throughout the book as well.
